Grass cutting and vine supporting
Defence treatments, to prevent the most common diseaese (downy mildew, powdery mildew, etc) continue.
The growth of vines is inspected to decide whether the pruning done in May needs to be repeated.
However, purning stops 45-50 days from the predicted harves or ripening of grapes.
Grass cutting on alternate rows continues for the entire season.
Close to the phenological phase of veraison, which is the beginning of grape ripening, excessive production is
controlled by cutting the second and third bunch on the productive cane, leaving the bunch at the base of the cane.
Once the vines and stakes are planted, supporting poles are planted by external companies that use modern
measuring tools (GPS etc) to achieve high precision.
The poles are placed at a distance of 5 metres one from the other, along the vine rows.
Heading poles and anchor are also planted at the beginning of each row.
To complete the structure of the new vineyard, steel wires must now be fixed along the rows.
This will be done in August.
