Tops

This measure in the vineyard (also tipping, vomiting, peaking, capping, beheading, tails) is carried out a few weeks after the vine blossoms. During this process, the overhanging shoots are trimmed off in moderation. This is intended to improve ventilation and solar radiation and reduce the risk of infestation by the Botrytis mould. See also under shoot tip cut.
