Detail of a vine Cordon Royat training before final pruning with old twigs and branches still on the vine, also showing how it looks when you du "surgreffage" (surgreffe, surgreffé), topworking/top grafting/field grafting in English, you top graft a new grape variety on an existing vine (or fruit tree) to change the variety of the fruit, you can see where the graft has been done: at the joint or "knot" on the trunk of the vine.
