Pruning: main activity in the vineyards in winter

PRUNING OF THE VINE 

The main activity in winter for the winegrowers, pruning consists of removing a sometimes important part of the wood from the vines. It has an impact on the year itself, notably on the quantity and quality of the production, but also on the following years.

The most developed pruning in the vineyards of the Centre-Loire is the Guyot pruning.

After pruning, a long piece of wood called a "baguette" is left on the vine to produce fruit.

Sicavac has published a guide to good vine pruning practices. This reference manual details the main pruning systems and also describes the different curative techniques against wood diseases.
