Winter Pruning at Avignonesi: a cold business
It's winter and it's time to prepare the vines for the upcoming season. We are pruning, both by hand and by machine, and it is a long and cold affair when you have 200 hectares/495 acres of vines to take care of, but this is where the bases for the next harvest are laid, so pruning is important. Very important.
Here's a picture gallery of our vineyard workers pruning on a cold, crisp winter day. The pictures are from the large Sangiovese vineyard in front of the winery at Lodola estate .
