THE GOBLET VINE TRAINING

This vine training method, typical in Etna area, is very old and has been used since ancient times: before the phylloxera, this is the most widespread system in Europe. Goblet vines are very common in the warmer wine producing areas, like Rhone Valley of Southern France or some areas in California (especially for old vine Zinfandel). Usually three or four canes are allowed to remain at the end of each year, but this number varies depending on the region. The rest of the canes are pruned at the end of the growing season...

THE GOBLET VINE TRAINING
This vine training method,typical in Etna area, isvery old and has beenused since ancient times: before the phylloxera, thisis the most widespreadsystem in Europe. Gobletvines are very common inthe warmer wine producing areas, likeRhone Valley of SouthernFrance or some areas inCalifornia (especially for old vine Zinfandel).Usually three or four canes are allowed to remain at the end of each year, but this number varies depending on the region. The rest of the canes are pruned at the end of the growing season.This method effectively keeps grapes near the ground and allows them tocontinue to ripen at night due to the heat retention of the soil. This factexplains why it’s generally not used in cooler climates: because it canexpose grapes to frostbite.

Goblet vines consist of a trunk topped with a broader “head” at the top of the permanent part of the vine.Canes grow from the head of the vine eachyear. Permanent branches of the vine aretrained, and only the new, barkless canes are pruned each year.These vines are resilient to weather anddisease, but are labor intensive to harvest,and unfertile soils are necessary, or the vine’sgrowth may touch the ground and lead tounwanted propagations.
