a year in the life of a Grape Vine.
In the early part of the year, the Souche produces buds and even now the vigneron must control what they want from the vine and may remove some.
Then in Spring life "Springs Forth"
The speed with which the vine grows is amazing and can be seen in front of your eyes on a day to day basis.
The growth is so fast that sometimes even this has to be controlled as too much foliage can hinder later growth.
