Last year I pre-pruned my vineyard to 6-8 inches once all the leaves fell off. It just makes it easier to do the final pruning end of winter. This year I would like to pre-prune as soon as possible because we need to do some landscape work in the vineyard. Will it hurt anything to pre-prune now (September), we just harvested yesterday?

Thank you for your response. I have a home vineyard. So my understanding from your response is that I can pre-prune now leaving 8 inches or so and then do final pruning in March? I live in Northern California and the canes are strong.
