frost risk audits

The anticipation of the new vintage is often tempered by the threat of spring frosts – potentially devastating yields and finances. Vineyards need tailored solutions as there is no ‘one size fits all’. The Vinescapes ‘Frost risk audit’ will provide:
  • A site risk assessment by Dr Alistair Nesbitt, or one of the experienced Vinescapes team members, and analysis of past damage patterns
  • A detailed frost event metrics and data detailing historical frost events and associated temperatures in the vineyard locality, together with cold air flow and accumulation risk zones mapping for clients
  • A tailored frost risk audit report detailing the site-specific recommendations to mitigate future frost events, including equipment recommendations, as required.
  • tow & blow
