Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

the work is well-redacted and provides a really interesting contribution on the cold climate viticulture under monsoon condition.

Here some questions to be revised:

  • About the tyloses phenomena (page 3). Authors could give the idea that tyloses due to pruning is a major concern regarding viticulture overall. In European viticulture, tyloses is generally associated to graft-incompatibility and sometime could generate from bad quality pruning cut. Authors could mitigate this claiming explaining that tyloses is a big worry especially in the conditions under investigation
  • Page 4. An image of comparative training methods as ILSP or MVF is desirable
  • Page 4-5. I can’t understand why abbreviation CCT is converted in SCCT
  • Page 6 line 241. This sentence contains a double negation, should be rewritten to be more understandable
  • Page 7. Authors could explain briefly the main differences with regard to grass cover difficulties in Mediterranean climate
  • Page 8 line 304. It’s some hard to imagine how is a sprayer fun. Is it possible to attach an image o describe with more details?
  • page 9 lines 351-360. I cannot understand why blf treatment reduces mounting and unmounting branches costs compared to vine burial. For both treatments winter training, removal of the brunches after winter and removing of trimmed shots are necessary, isn’t it?
  • Page 9 lines 374-375. “which prevents the growth of grass during the year………” it is describes as something desired, but it seems contradictory with respect to section 3.1
  • Page 10 lines 385-387. The sentence “the water content of vine the long-tipped……….” is hard to understand, please explain better
  • Page 10 line 394-395. What happen with other pests or diseases? Authors could provide some information or specify that concerning observations are not yet available
  • Section 5. In main opinion it could be better summarized

Reviewer 2 Report

Dear authors,

the review of the vinicultural practice in China is presented. Different aspects of the Crowled cordon mode is described in detailed. This mode of vineyard management is specific for cold climate zone where also the Chinese viticulture area is placed. The review is well presented and easy to read, but there is also a potential for paper improvement.  As a reader of such paper, I would like to get insight on what type of  grapevine cultivars are  grown in Chinese grapevine zones  and about the ones that are dominant in Chinese Vineyard. Among them is there the difference in susceptibility to CCM?

The authors emphasize the beneficial features of CCM, but lacks a critical aspects of CCM, if there is any?

Some statements like “different pruning method can change the photosynthetic characteristics and distribution of organic carbon” are repeated. The statement: “More nutrients were transferred to grapes under CCT, for improved grape quality and reduced influences of weather” (line 222) needs to be supported by the reference.  The literature lacks more recent dates.
