Memories of the pruning at Barone Montalto

03 April. NEWS

February has been the month dedicated to this very important process, which assures the correct management of the vineyards. It’s essential for the quality of the grapes and allows theirs growth and quantity control. Let’s find out something more about our pruning.
The Barone Montalto vineyards follows the Guyot management of the vine, among the best known and used worldwide. The classic cuts we use are: cut of the past, cut of the present and cut of the future.
Every year, the Guyot pruning renews the shoot, on which the new production will develop. The cut of the past removes the old shoot, from the last harvest, leaving a spur with a number of buds based on the grape characteristics and quality. Then this spur is bend and horizontally tied on a wire: from here we will have the new grapes. Usually, we leave also a spur with few buds, from which the shoots for next year production will grow. Past and present but always paying attention to the future!

Il Mercato di Ballarò è il più antico e caratteristico mercato storico di Palermo. La merce è disposta ordinatamente su cassette di legno e balate di marmo. La disposizione dei prodotti è una vera composizione artistica, che si completa con le particolari cannucce infilzate su ogni prodotto per indicarne i prezzi e le tende illuminate da lampadine che pendono dall'alto. Ci si può trovare veramente di tutto e non mancano i numerosi punti di street food. Una gita tra i sapori, i colori, gli odori, i suoni e i rumori di una Palermo multietnica e suggestiva. 😎 The Ballarò Market is one of the oldest and most characteristic open air markets of Palermo. The goods are arranged neatly on wooden boxes with the arrangement reminiscent of an Arab "suk." The arrangement of the products is a true work of art, offering everything from fresh fruit to very traditional street food from Palermo. #baronemontalto #baronemontaltowine #sicily #experiencesicily #discoversicily #sicilia #winetime #wineoclock #ilovewine #lovewine #wineaddict #winewinewine #winesofinstagram #cheers #wine #vino #winelover #winetime #winelovers #instawine #winelife #wine🍷 #wineoftheday #instavino #instawines
