Pruning
 

We use the term balance a lot in the wine industry, but never more appropriately than in our desire for a balanced vine. Pruning is an annual opportunity to direct each vine towards that balance and Northwest Vineyard Service’s experienced pruning crews can do just that. We start by evaluating the prior year’s growth to determine if the appropriate amount of fruit wood was maintained. Proper selection of renewal spurs and the next year's fruiting canes and their positioning are crucial for the next year’s production. Pruning choices not only effect the growth and production of the vine for the following growing season, but will also have lasting effects on the vine’s permanent structure and future production. We focus on maintaining vine height, preventing congestion in the head, position of spurs and canes and setting the vine up for future pruning.
