By this one understands different methods, in a specific form the growth of the grapevine to steer. The Rebstock is a climbing plant (Liana), which can not hold itself upright and therefore requires a climbing aid or support structure. The Wild vinesentwine mostly up to young trees and grow with them in the air. For longer management and for the possible use of machinery, the vines must retain their shape and must not (what they would do) grow ever higher. That is why man began thousands of years ago shoots to shorten and artificial support facilities such as piles or sticks, racks and slats with taut strings or wires to use. A decisive measure in the winter break (Rest time) is the pruning in which the one-year wood is pruned. With annual measures (winter cut, summer cut and foliage care ) will assess the impact of apical dominance counteracted in order to maintain the chosen educational system.
