Guyot education

A training system named after the French scientist Dr. Jules Guyot (1807-1872), also known as low trellis training. The system is used in France (especially Bordeaux and Burgundy), Italy and Spain, and also in Germany and Austria under the name of Streckbogen (one shoot to one side) or Doppelstreckbogen (two shoots to the left and right). When pruning, the second closest fruit shoot to the trunk (long shoot) is left standing, cut to six to fifteen eyes, then bent and tied to the lowest wire. From the winter eyes of this arch, the fruit canes sprout in spring, which will bear the grapes that year. Sub-variants are Arched Cane (Arcure), Château Thierry, Capovolto and Cazenave. See also complete lists of related keywords at vine training (all systems) and vineyard care (all measures and activities in the vineyard).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
