What happens in the vineyard?

Looking into the vineyard

Working in the vineyard is one of the most important activities for a winemaker. The management of a vineyard naturally contributes massively to the quality of a wine. Here you get an insight of what currently keeps the winemakers busy.

Many winegrowers and even more "seasonal workers" have been in the vineyard for weeks to cut back the vines. Pruning is still the most time consuming work, that needs to be done by hand in the winegrower's year. Therefore, many winegrowers are looking for an alternative. An the answer is actually very simple: simply don't prune. The technical term for this type of growing system is "non-pruning" or "minimal pruning".

Most winegrowers take a break over Christmas and between the years. The seasonal workers also are at home now with their families. Some wineries started pruning right after the leaves fell at the end of November, the majority of them begin this work in mid-January, which then continues until the end of March.
