[pic]http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f392/Duncaninfrance/April-Buds.jpg" wisth=650>

After the dormant winter the vines are cut back and all the previous years wood is reduced to 2 short branches, one either side of the main trunk of the plant. These will supply the growth for the current years fruit. Each branch will be cut to allow for 3 buds to grow thus allowing 6 bunches of grapes per vine plant. This is a picture of a new bud taken in April.

Please feel free to ask questions as I go along as I am sure I shall forget to cover everything :)

Where is the large angry dog?

During my hike from Port Bou to Perpignan in 1969 I found the vinyards to be well stocked with large angry dogs----who thought the public road was also part of the vinyard.

Friend sent me this ad from many years ago when Schlitz was still a premium beer.
