Video: How to trellis grapes: build a trellis, prune a vine

We show how to build a simple trellis, prune young vines, and train them to the trellis. We then take a look at what pruning looks like on more established vines.

To add these trellised grapes to our foodscape, we planted one vine bareroot in March of 2018 and two potted vines in June of 2018. In this video, we show building a trellis in 2019 using 4×4 redwood posts and galvanized steel wire. The video features pruning demonstrations on all three 2018 planted vines showing how to set them up for training to a trellis both when trained or untrained during their first growing season. The look at what pruning looks like on more established vines features a spur-pruned variety which is trained to an arbor.
