Dormant pruning is done during the winter months when the vines are in dormancy. During the first year, pruning is done to train the vines to make sure that it reaches the trellis wire and facilitate the development of desired vine canopy that will impact future fruit production.  For mature vines, pruning is done to remove the previous year’s growth, including diseased and damaged cordons, removal of old spurs that are no longer productive, and removal of tendrils. The goal is to remove unwanted plant material in order to maintain the desired canopy shape that will promote vine growth, facilitate disease management to ensure the continued production of high quality fruit.
