Pruning is an operation that creates the foundation of a winery production

It can directly influence the lifespan of the vines, their production, quality of grapes and therefore the wine.

Marco Simonit will show us some specific pruning cases, while observing the plants’ development and analyzing each specific pruning choice he makes.
