French term (also called passerillage) for grapes that are deliberately stuck to the vine to dry, for berries with a high sugar and extract content for the production of sweet wines to obtain. In good years, for example, this will be the case in southwestern France Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh produced. This corresponds to one Trockenbeerenauslese, This can also be brought about artificially by partially cutting the fruit rods shortly before the harvest. This stops the water supply, the berries release water through the berry skin and shrink. This process, called "cut cane" in English, is used, for example, in Australia. The same applies to the production of raisins after heavy rains to prevent rotting. A similar process was already in ancient Rome for the raisin wine passum common. For similar processes or wines produced in this way, see under Flétri. Passito and Recioto,
