Named after the Italian winemaker Carlo Sylvoz from Conegliano in the Veneto wine-growing region vine training. It belongs to the group of cordon training systems and is a variant of the reverse training system. The fruit shoots are trained from top to bottom instead of from bottom to top. Two long fruiting shoots with around ten eyes are cut as fruiting wood, pulled downwards in a vertical direction and attached to a wire. A prerequisite is that the vines are vigorous. The picture on the left shows a Sylvoz training method, the picture on the right the similar Styrian arch training method.
