Our domain comprises mostly three main grape varieties, that is to say, three types of vines. We do ‘short pruning’ on all the vines, to favour the quality of the yield. We believe that short pruning means better quality and avoids a green harvest.
The strength of each vine is estimated and the pruning is adapted to meet its needs; we leave a different number of grapes on each one. In fact a weak vine in our view needs more pruning so as to leave fewer grapes and not have the vine over exerted during the vegetative cycle. On the other hand, a more vigorous and stronger vine can produce and ripen a greater number of grapes. If we prune it too much, we end up with a Bonsai effect. Careful and precise pruning also allows nurturing of the vines; it is a crucial time for them.
