The very old education system is available under different names such as Albarello, Basket Training, Bäumchen, Bock education, Busch, Bush Vines, En vaso, Goblet and Vase. It was already in the antiquity invented by the Greeks and adopted by the Romans. It is a special form of head education, The vines are tied up in the classic form without any support (wires, frame or the like) or tied to single posts, so that a cup-like shape is created (gobelet = cup or cup) or crawled on the ground. The relatively short ones are typical vines with a spherical head that is large depending on age, usually only about 20 to 40 centimeters above the ground.

There are two to a maximum of five well distributed around the head Kordone (Thighs) with a cone each with two to three on it eyes, Cordons that have become too long are pruning rejuvenated. The vines are either given a short stake as a support, or the summer shoots can be carried by tying them together. In particularly dry areas of France or Italy, the shoots for shading the soil are allowed to spread unhindered on all sides.
