Our workshops help vineyard owners, managers and operatives to achieve better crop yields, fruit quality, vine health and profitability, by increasing their knowledge and developing practical skills. Common problems faced by many vineyards are yield variability, disease pressures, declining vine health and productivity – which impacts the viability of the business.
Our highly experienced team of viticulturists share their knowledge, skills and tips across all vineyard operations - resulting in improved yields, quality and vine and soil health. Our practical skills one-day workshops are held seasonally, across the regions.
