When pruning a lot of movement in the fresh air

Over Christmas and between the years, most vintners take a break and go on a skiing holiday. Unfortunately, that won't work this year and so maybe some vintners will pack their pruning shears for a walk, combine the good with the useful and start pruning in the vineyard.

When the sun is shining, you can really relax from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas business. And the ingested vitamin D should also strengthen the resistance.

In traditional arch training, pruning is still the most complex manual work in the vineyard. In spite of all alternative forms of upbringing, most wineries still cut their vines back to a single rod in the classic way. The goal is to get around 10 to 15 buds for the coming year. In the meantime, hand shears operated with muscle power have been replaced by electrically powered battery shears. The digging of the cut vines is done in a second step by less experienced assistants. Then the vine wood lying on the ground is chopped up and remains in the vineyard as organic fertilizer.
