There are different ways to prune vines. Here in the Loire in Anjou we see a lot of Single Guyot and Double Guyot pruning, a cane replacement system.
Pruning in the Loire valley
This machine is ‘pre-pruning’ the vines which makes life quicker and easier for the pruners to do their work later on.
This year we are hoping mother nature will be a little kinder to our growers here in the Loire. After 2 really hard years, they deserve an easier time in 2014.
