The grape-growing and winemaking year starts in late autumn after the harvest, when leaves begin falling from the vines. In winter (June–August) the bare vines are pruned, with most of the previous year’s growth being cut away. In spring (September–November) the buds take off, with grapes appearing then ripening through the summer (December–February) to be ready for the harvest in autumn (March–May).
