Sunrise Aufbinden

Aufbinden is the term given to tying up the new canes in summer. In a vineyard without trellising, each vine has it’s own pole and therefore limited real estate to accommodate the explosion of growth during May and June.

Common practice is to train 4 or 5 canes up the pole and tip the remaining canes so they don’t break off under their own weight. The following years canes need to be selected during this canopy management.
