My Little Vine 2016
For the eight year, I have been tracking the evolution of this little vine in "Les Echezeaux". Do not hesitate to compare to the previous years to see the impact of the weather: 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009.

My little vine has just been pruned. The woods are now on the ground in windrow, ready to be mulched in site to enrich the soil. Next, we will attach the canes, which gives me the opportunity to occasionally shorten one that is too long. Then we will allow Spring to do its work, although the sap appears to be ready to move up...!

My little vine is quietly waking up after the winter. We will begin the cane pruning with a new approach. Denis will crunch the cut canes with a new tool. It will ease the tilting as long canes can block the plow! We will see if this new approach is worth the effort
