Wine photo of the week 

Winter's on its way in the northern hemisphere and the vines are thinking about shutting shop for the 
season. Soon it will be time to think about pruning - the backbreaking work that is the winegrower's staple 
winter activity. Pruning can be done any time the vine is dormant, but most leave it until after the 
coldest bits of winter because many of the bugs will have been killed. And there's also the option of pruning 
very late to retard bud burst a bit in frost-prone areas.
Picture taken January 2006 in Switzerland.
