c. n.


Vine trained and attached to metal wires, a stake, or other means of support and control of vegetative growth. 1


Trellised vines […] produce straighter and cleaner fruits than vines grown on the ground […] the trellis is sturdy, especially in windy areas, since an individual plant can vine up to 40 feet. 2


The trellised vines are much easier to harvest because the vines are trained on wires and most of the grapes hang down and are accessible. 3

trellis = c.1400, "lattice, grating," from O.Fr. trelis, originally "sackcloth," from V.L. *trilicius, from L. trilicis, gen. of trilix "having three threads, triple-twilled," from tri- three + licium "thread." Cognate with Gk. trimitos. Sense extended in O.Fr. to things "woven" of iron, etc., which brought on infl. of O.Fr. treille "vine trellis," perhaps from L. trichila "bower, arbor," which is apparently from L. triclinium "couch extending round three sides of a table" (for reclining on at meals). Meaning "lattice used to support growing vines" is from 1513.

vine = c.1300, from O.Fr. vigne, from L. vinea "vine, vineyard," from vinum "wine," from PIE *win-o-, from an Italic noun related to words for "wine" in Gk., Armenian, Hittite, and non-I.E. Georgian and West Semitic (cf. Heb. yayin, Ethiopian wayn); probably ult. from a lost Mediterranean language word *w(o)in- "wine." 6
