Pruning grapevines is an essential step in the winemaking process.

Each snip of the shears has an impact on the upcoming harvest. If you trim too much you run the risk of having a grapevine that won’t develop enough shoots and foliage to ripen the grapes. Trimming too little leads to an overgrown tangle of vines that are difficult to manage and may result in a small yield.
