E-learning the METHOD.

All our courses are based on the SIMONIT&SIRCH METHOD
and its four simple principles applicable to all vine training systems. 

Controlled Branching

Learn to give a clear shape to the structure of the vine, allowing it to expand and develop, while controlling branching.

Continuity of the sap flow

Through the structure of the plant. The second principle of the SIMONIT&SIRCH METHOD concerns the continuity of the sap flow, the tool of communication between the roots and the foliage, through the entire structure of the plant.


Crown Cuts

Learn to make small cuts on one- or two-year-old wood and respect the crown buds. Precision pruning reduces the area of the wound exposed and the consequent desiccation.


Spare wood

A further defense for the grape vine. Learn to prune allowing for a portion of protective wood when cutting on two year old wood to reduce the effects of desiccation cones.
