The pruning is the very first task of the year and one of the most important. Depending on how you prune, it will change the form in which the vine is going to evolve, its longevity as well as the quantity of branches that will grow.
This last parameter includes the amount of grapes and leaves which is the most important. There are various rules to respect like the ones imposed by the AOP but amongst all, the ones that we impose to ourselves.
For example we decided to practice short pruning to increase our vine longevity while keeping in mind that more grapes/leaves require more water. And this last resource is really rare here between May and October. It’s all about making the good decisions while being aware of any parameters.
