Carefully nursing our plants
At this time of the year we spend a lot of time making sure our vines have the perfect number of shoots and leaves. The leaves are the engine of the plant and generate all the energy needed for both the vine and its grapes via photosynthesis.
We strip off the surplus leaves and shoots in order to ensure a balanced growth and distribution of energy between plant and fruit. Here, we’re very careful not to strip too much as we want to provide enough shade for our grapes to avoid them getting sun burned.
