The use of Chablis Trellises in Vineyards
In this way, one needs only to count the number of permanent branches to see how many years old a vine is. The longest permanent branch is pruned before it touches an adjacent vine.
Depending on the climate and terrain of their specific region, vineyard managers throughout the world may decide to use this trellis system. Factors include soil fertility, heat and water retention, slope of the ground, sun exposure and varietal type.
The Chablis system includes wires that train canes and foliage so that the vines can be easily pruned. This allows the vineyard manager to optimize the amount of energy going to a specific amount of grapes. These wires can be shifted as vines become more mature.
