The traditional practice of training grapes to grow as a bush is known as alberello (vite ad alberello) in Italy.  This practice is very labour-intensive but has the advantages of allowing maximum light for each vine as well as the vine being strong enough to withstand winds. This method of growing grapes dates back to the time of the Etruscans and the Greeks.
