The main way it is usually done is by "leaf pulling" - removing leaves 
from around the clusters to expose them to more light.  Pruning in late 
summer is risky because it can stimulate new shoot growth that doesn't 
harden off in time before frost, leaving the vine more vulnerable to 
cold damage.
