Simonite & Sirch Method

A gentle form of pruning named after the viticultural experts Marco Simonit and Pierpaolo Sirch from Friuli in Italy, also known as "gentle pruning" or "healthy pruning". The method developed in the 1980s is nothing fundamentally new, but is based on very old experiences that have been adapted to the requirements of modern viticulture. The focus is on the health of the vine with a significant extension of the life cycle to at least 50 years, i.e. twice today's average age. This means that the philosophy of the high quality of old vines, which was already considered obsolete in some cases, is gaining in importance again.
