Pruning in Castelli di Jesi


Last week at Pievalta, they finished pruning the forty-year-old Verdicchio vineyards around the cellar and this week they have been pruning the young ones (4 years old).

At Pievalta, the Guyot training system is employed and so every year during the pruning, they leave a cane from the previous vintage that they they bind to the training wire.

On Saturday morning they’ll meet with their oenologist to see what’s happening in the vineyard during the winter.
