Importance of Canopy at Harvest

Harvest tidbit:

You might think that the canopy (leaves) aren't important during harvest. Maybe they are there because they are part of the plant. The canopy is very important both at harvest and post harvest of the grapes.

The sugar from the leaves not only develops the crop and allows for the plant to grow, it also helps in the hardening of the buds for winter.
