Hectare

The hectare is the usual measure in the wine industry. The term is of Greek origin (“hekatón” = 100) and was adopted from French. The French had recomposed the term with the prefixes "hecto" = 100 and "are" = area). One hectare therefore corresponds to the space of 100 meters and thus 10,000 m². The unit of measurement was adopted by the Comité International des Poids et Mesures (CIPM) in 1879, making it the predominant international unit of measurement.
