Pruning the vineyards

During the coldest part of the year, it´s usually January while the vines are “hibernating”, we will carry out the pruning. Fortunately, technology has evolved which has made things much easier: With electric cutters we can select and prune the vines according to our needs. Important issue here is to reduce to the amount of buds on the vine, that is where the new shoots will come out in spring. The old vine represents the middle, from which two canes are tied: One on the left and one on the right. The old remaining shoots are taken away from the trellising wires and piled up in the middle of the row, where they will be mulched. Usually the work has to be carried out in harsh conditions (cold, wind, fog, …) but it´s a good time for contemplation and thinking about life.

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.
