There are many different systems which can be used to train vines. Your choice of system will be dependent on many different factors and should only be made after careful research and consultation with viticulturists.
The image above is an example one system, the Double Guyot system, and shows some of our trellising sundries in use. With the Double Guyot system each vine has two canes (cordons) trained in opposite directions along the bottom two wires. The shoots which grow on the canes become the fruiting canes and produce the grapes for the following season. Fruiting canes are trained to grow between two sets of "moveable wires" (each set consisting of a pair of wires, held together with g-clips), which are secured to the end posts by chains and nails. The moveable wires hold the fruiting canes in place, permit height adjustment on the trellising system as the fruiting canes grow, and can be lowered to the ground to assist winter pruning.
The trellising sundries shown in the illustration above are as follows:
Please note, we also supply vine guards which offer some protection from grazing animals, such as rabbits; the Tubex vine guards also create a 'mini greenhouse' effect. Vine guards should be applied as soon as the vines are planted.
More information about vinegrowing can be found on Plumpton College's wineskills page. Plumpton College also offer a range of courses on vinegrowing and winemaking.
