Pruning represents the start of the new year for a grapevine. It is one of the most important steps and is done in late winter when the vines are dormant. At pruning, you decide how many spurs, buds, shoots and, ultimately, clusters each vine will produce.
One of our growers, Steve Beresini, hand prunes each of his Pinot vines himself. He knows his vines well and how much they are capable of producing, which, in the end, means small quantities but top quality fruit for our wines. We joined him in Beresini Vineyard on a beautiful February morning and took a video.
