I have seyval blanc vine planted against the south side of my house and must be about 20 years old. It produces a mass of grapes each year but my concern is about any damage the roots may cause to my property. It is trained well away from the wall along a metal framework about 20 feet long and therefore the top growth is not a problem. It looks spectacular at this time of year but I wonder if I should think of removing the vine to be on the safe side.
