The Golden Vine - De Wetshof Estate

Winter is for Pruning The Golden Vine, from which The Site Chardonnay is made, is looking bare and sparse. For it is the heart of winter. And this means pruning the vine shoots. Cutting away the tired grower shoots and last season's grape producing buds. Nipping away the shoots to leave the buds from where the plant will bud in spring greenness over a month or two, depending on the weather.
