Our work this year is to make sure that the grape vines are properly trained onto the wire work that we have set up for them.The system we are using is called Geneva Double Curtain. At the top of the stake the shoot is pinched to stimulate two shoots to grow on each side arm. Once they reach the wires they are each pinched again to send two new shoot in each direction. We end up with four 'arms' on each vine.
Marco is keeping the weeds under control and training the vines.
