What do ill-fitting pants and pruned vines have in common?

Cane pruning is common practice in Organ and coastal vineyards, especially for pinot noir, but is an unusual occurrence in our area. Pruning techniques vary from area to area and winemaker to winemaker, depending upon many factors such as airflow, proliferation, canopy management, rain, and moisture. Because Paso Robles is typically a dry area, more foliage is desired for protecting the fruit from the sun.
