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. Described are also the training methods in the first three years. Once fully trained, the main trunk of the vine is left alone, the yearly Pruning is concerned only with the side shoots.
