The Trentino pergola system

Trentino wine making has always been tied to the pergola system, which is still the region's most widely used vine-training method. This cultivation method was created in Trentino itself and guarantees the appropriate amount of sun exposure for the vines, which are grown for the most part on sloping terrain. Moreover, the pergola system allows the land to be organised into terraces and aids the pruning and tying of vines, guaranteeing a good result. Other vine training methods that are now very common for the cultivation of grapes intended for the metodo classico are the Guyot and spurred cordon.
