Vines cut as art
Winemaker Himmel claims to have cutting vines has a system. Somehow it looks a bit like art, but Lena has understood, „that you have to pay attention so you do not cut everything. A few shoots must be left, otherwise no grapes grow there „. The correct handling of the pruning shears must be learned.
Children come regularly
Several dates are planned for the year, when the children will meet with winegrowers. Whenever there is work to be done again in the vineyard. They get to know machines that are used in the vineyards.
Viticulture in detail
The vines must be broken and culminated at any time. The pruning was the first stage. But a very crucial one. „If you make a mistake, it can happen that there is no grape growing at all.
There are, of course, also weather influences like hail, before that one is also not protected. This can lead to a total failure, „says Winzer Himmel.
The winemaker has already trained many young people, but so young was none yet. „With the kids here, this is a special pleasure, but of course a special challenge.“
Already they are all feverish for autumn. When the grapes are ripe, there is a feast.
