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.
Over the course of summer, the vines are sprayed on a regular schedule every nine days. So, starting in April, this will result in 8-10 rounds. Depending on the type of season, we will use different types of sprays, like e.g. baking soda, various herbal teas, sulfur, etc. We invested in an expensive full canopy
The new shoots of a vine will now not only grow on the designated canes, but also on parts of the vine that will cause the vine to use too much energy. These as well as weeds need to be taken away either by hand or mechanically. Shoots can also emerge from higher up on
