The pruning technique is both ancient and unique. It was created taking into account the soil and climate conditions of the regions, as well as the farming implements that where then available. The sandy soil, the fierce winds of spring, the time of year when the vineyard grows and the scorching sun of the summer are the reasons that led to the creation of this peculiar and unique type of pruning employed in the island. Specifically, two types of pruning, similar to the Guyot type of pruning, were created.

One type is called the "giristi". It is applied in the places that are most exposed to wind, which constitutes the largest part of the vineyard. In this type of pruning, the vine grower takes 4 to 5 “amolites” (one year old canes with 8-10 fruit buds), and interweaves them into a wreath of old and new vines. The vine, which is pruned in this fashion, resembles a basket made of vine twigs.

The other method of pruning is called "koulouri" or "klada". This entails the use of 4 to 5 "amolites". The vine grower, using exquisite care (so that it does not break), fashions a small hollow circle, which is approximately vertical to the ground level.
