    Hi guys

    Im hoping this is the right place for this question but here goes.

    When will the advanced courses be available if you have completed the guyot and spur pruning courses?

    Second, Is there any content on training young vines or the suckers from surgery?

    Third, What about taking cuttings to produce new plants to replace old rotted vines?

    Finally, i would love to see examples and case studies of vineyards where poor pruning practises have been used and how you can convert to the S&S method. E.g vines that have no clear spurs, canes sideways, inconsistent vegetive points, Way to long cordons. I would love to see examples of how you can rescue the vines and potentially bring in back into line with the S&S method.

    Thanks so much guys!

    Dear Clint,

    some answers:

    – The Advanced courses release is planned for next winter 2021-2022, and it will be possible (and very adviced) to enroll them once you complete VINE PRUNER Guyot\Spurred Cordon courses.

    – in Advanced courses program there is the young vines training. The young nurse plant training, the trunk building and branches creation and how to manage them for the first years of branching.

    – in Advanced courses program there is the basical techniques to convert old plants from Crown head\repositioning cuts in S&S METHOD.

    Thank you for your advices and to say what would you like more. Advices from all of you are very precious to improve our courses.

    Hi,

    I have completed the Guyot/Spurred Cordon courses and have every intention to move to the advance courses.

    Everything you have listed sounds perfect and i cannot wait to sign up and progress into these courses.

    Our vineyard is adopting the S&S method as we speak and i’ve been told that there is a local vineyard in Mudgee Australia that has adopted the S&S from scratch and guess what! No trunk rot, no dieback. All healthy living tissue. Marco visited our town of Mudgee one day on a tour of Australia to give some training i believe.

    Thanks anyways guys, i look forward to the new advance courses and i cant wait for them to come out. If you need any early beta testers please let me know id be happy to help out.

    Cheers guys. All the best!
