GIANNA VOLPE | Cane pruning is one of two major forms of winter pruning used in North Fork Wine Country.

Vineyard manager and head winemaker Rosamond Baiz of Old Field Vineyards in Southold gives a short tutorial on cane pruning, one of two major styles of winter-time pruning.

Rosamond and husband Chris Baiz have been running the farm since 1996 when they took the reins. Martha Clara Vineyards helped their family transform what was once the Baiz-owned potato farm into a vineyard by laser-planting 8,000 Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines onto the property.
