Training Grapevines

Well-trained grapevines have a strong but spartan stem framework. Here you can select from a range of systems to train your vines, and read about the training methods in the first three years. Once fully trained, the main trunk of the vine is left alone, and the yearly pruning is concerned only with the side shoots.
