Materials needed: last year's grape vines
Tools needed: hand pruners
: bucket or tub for soaking cuttings
When: late Winter of early Spring
Step 1: How many pieces to cut and the cutting details.
Start at the thick, cut end of the vine and continue to cut sections until the vine becomes too small in diameter. I usually don't use anything less than the diameter of a pencil. Aside the pieces you want to keep. Into another pile, cut the rest of the vine into sections for disposal however is appropriate where you live.
Tie your bundle of cuttings and store for use later in the year.
