A training system named after the Italian winemaker Carlo Sylvoz from Conegliano in the wine-growing region of Veneto. It is one of the many variants of trellis training and, in a broader sense, also belongs to the large group of so-called cordon training systems. At a trunk height of 140 to 160 centimetres, a single-arm cordon is pulled downwards (downwards instead of upwards, hence also reverse training). For the fruiting wood, two long fruiting arches with about ten eyes are cut, pulled downwards in a vertical direction and attached to a wire. The prerequisite is good vigour of the vines. However, this system is not recommended for dry growing areas.
The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
