After the autumnal defoliation, the vineyard remains naked but not inert. It is necessary to prune it with care. The vine shoots that will appear next spring, will be different from those of the previous year. Any of the vine-growers of the Winery Reina de Castilla will say us if we ask him that pruning is simple, " that it isn't a science ", and one cannot do less than blushing before the wisdom of these persons who have taken care of his hawthorns since long ago and who take care of them like if they were their children, that year after year, they return to life in spring. The land prepares and the land is being prepared. The winter, in these Castilian lands, becomes long but not eternal. Soon the spring will come.
