Anyone know when is a good time to prune my grape vines back? Also how much should I prune them.

Many thanks.

Prune in later winter / very early spring before the sap starts to run. Prune back to not less than about 6 inches from the main leader. Shorter than that will decrease production. I trim mine between 8 & 10 inches from the main leader.
