Monitoring and maintaining the cordon with short pruning in late winter. Nutritional supplements with organic fertilizers manure to early winter before bud burst. Periodic toppings for vegetation control and production control with manual selection of the grapes before veraison. Light defoliation after fruit setting. Defense with organic control.
