As soon as the shoots are high enough, they have to be “woven” into the trellising system. This wire construction is essential for the shoots to grow vertically and then finally result in a lush green canopy. This canopy is the guarantee for ideal photosynthesis as well as shading the grapes from the aggressive sun.
A few weeks after the first “weaving” the second part of the work takes place during the hot summer months of July and August. The long shoots are now above the upper lifting wire, so that they are nicely bound inside the trellising system. Afterwards, these shoots are trimmed to contain them from being torn
