Around the Vineyard

Winter Pruning: Science & Art

Winter pruning or dormant pruning is both rejuvenating and necessary to optimize health and potential yield. Pruning promotes vigor, controls size, shape and balances shoots and fruit. If a vine is not pruned the result would be an over production of fruit which could reduce sugar content and less pigmented skins creating a paler, less flavorful wine with a lower alcohol content. Our winemakers at Pulchella seek grapes with high sugar content or Brix number.

Late winter pruning may delay bud break, which may be advantageous to avoid early spring frosts, but can also jeopardize new growth should a cold snap occur. Pray that Mother Nature will be merciful!
