Winter in the vineyard

Wednesday, 01 February 2023

The vintner never rests!

Just because harvest is over doesn’t mean that there is no work to be done in the vineyard. Winter is an equally important time for us as we use winter dormancy to prepare for the next growing season. Winter pruning is one of the most crucial aspects of vine management. Branches from the previous year are cut back and new branches are selected from which shoots will grow in springtime. It's a delicate process. This critical step dictates how many buds will emerge in spring and ultimately, how many leaves and grape bunches the vine will produce. All of this is of course a determining factor in grape quality.
