Definizione

Part of the vine’s woody framework, arising from the top of the trunk and on which arms are born. 1

Nota

Cordons can be at any angle but are generally trained along horizontal wires, or shallowly slope wires as in some tendon trellises. The most common arrangement is a bilateral cordon in which two horizontal cordons are arranged in opposite directions from the top of the trunk, but any number of arrangements are possible. Usually the cordon is trained to its permanent position and remains there, but if there is a need for it to be flexible it is kept long and curved, or overlapped with other cordons. 2

Contesto

In viticulture, the canopy of a grapevine includes the parts of the vine visible aboveground - the trunk, cordon, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruit.
