Protected viticulture is a method of cultivating vines that shields the plants from extreme climatic conditions to reduce stress.

In terms of conventional agriculture, this would entail using glass or plastic houses or cloches to protect plants from low temperatures; these structures are uncommon in commercial wine grape vineyards due to the prohibitive costs, though they can be found in cool-climate England or even in some areas of California to prevent some Chardonnay vines from having poor fruit set. Table grapes are typically grown under protected conditions, such as in Northern Europe, Japan, and New Zealand.

Windbreaks, various frost prevention methods, watering, and protection from the wind can all be used to safeguard vines.
