Prune grape vines with pruning shears, taking off significant amounts of new growth during the dormant period of late winter. To prune a heavily overgrown grapevine, cut as much as 90 percent of the plant's total growth down to the major trunk to encourage new growth.
Grape vines grow on trellis wire systems on or off wooden posts. Three types of trellis wire systems are high cordon, umbrella kniffin and vertical shoot position systems.
Grow grape vines by choosing the right type of plant for your location, planting the vines in a good site, constructing a trellis, mulching the plants, fertilizing the plants and pruning the vines often. You need bare-root grape vines, a garden trowel, a trellis, mulch, fertilizer and pruning shears
Grape vines should be planted in the early spring when the soil becomes pliant and workable. Planting in the spring as early as possible gives the vines ample time to grow.
The ultimate healthy height for grape vines is between 5 and 6 feet. Grapes grow best with a main trunk and two side canes.

Grapevines usually are pruned in the winter, after the coldest weather is past. This timeframe coincides with late February through March for much of the country, although the optimal pruning time varies for each growing zone.
Dormant pruning, the most-important practice in vineyard management, is done after the vine has been bare for at least a month, between mid-December and bud break in March. Pruning too early impedes the absorption of the remaining nitrate nitrogen from the xylem fluid within the woody stems, needed
