"A grape's life cycle starts right after harvest. As temperatures drop, leaves fall off the vine. Vineyard workers prune throughout winter to prepare the vine for the spring growth to come. The pruning helps determine the number of shoots that will bear fruit, thus affecting the next season's yield." - from "The Life of a Grape," an article in Publix's Grape magazine

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch of mine that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit." - John 15:1-2, ESV
