The importance of pruning grapevines every year cannot be down played. Pruning encourages not only the grapevine to grow, but for luscious grapes to form. The goal is to remove 90 percent of the growth from last year. This way, the vine channels its energy into new growth and reinvents itself each year.

“‘Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me.'”
