The traditional practice of cultivating head-trained bush vines is transmitted through generations of vine growers and farmers of the island of Pantelleria. The technique consists of several phases, from preparing the ground, planting the vine, pruning the stem and finally harvesting grapes The knowledge and skills of bearers and practitioners are handed down in families through oral instruction in the local dialect and through practice. Rituals and festivals organized between July and September allow the local community to share this social practice.
