We grow a Pinot Noir grape outdoors. It fruits freely. Trunk about 4 inches wide and 30 feet long under the front of a canopy. After the leaves have done their autumn display. All this years shoots are taken right back to the main stem. As the fruits develope I just snip away just beyond each bunch. That way you get bigger bunches and the vine does not get in the kitchen! Established vines can take severe pruning, as you can see in vineyards. It's the root that does all the work. We neither feed nor water the vine. Hope this is a help.
