    Vitivinícola stands for anything referred to grapevine (vid) and wine (vini).

    I agree, but permit me to give you a little tip:

    It is related to the wine and everything involved in the production of the wine.

    Hello!

    According to some Spanish-English dictionaries:
    vitivinícola
    adj. wine, winegrowing; viticultural, vine-growing
    m. & f. winegrower; viticulturist, vine grower

    'Vitivinícola' derives from 'vitivinicultura', that is, the growing of grapes and the wine production.

    In Spanish:
    Viticultura --> Arte de cultivar las vides (viticulture, art of growing grapevines)
    Vinicultura --> Elaboración de vinos (viniculture, winegrowing)
    Vitivinicultura --> Arte de cultivar las vides y elaborar el vino (viticulture + viniculture, art of growing vines and producing wine)

    I hope that that helps! Bye!

    Hola!
    Muy buena la explicación de Filomeno.
    Estoy traduciendo una presentación al inglés y el título dice: "CARACTERIZACIÓN VITIVINÍCOLA ARGENTINA"
    ¿Cuál creen que será la mejor traducción para "vitivinícola"? Parece que en inglés no hay una sola palabra para decirlo. Podrá ser "grape growing and winemaking? (winemaking es una sola palabra?), o tal vez "viticulture and winemaking"? Busqué en Google la palabra "vitivinicultural", y, aunque aparecen varios sitios, parece que no es una palabra muy usada por los angloparlantes.
    Any suggestions, please?
    Thanks in advance,
    M.
