Possessing poly tunnel infrastructure in Legana Tasmania, Bruce offers expertise and advice on suitable varieties, clones and rootstock for individual sites and grows the young grapevines for you.

VINEYARD MANAGEMENT ADVICE
This work focuses on the growing season with frequent, regular vineyard visits followed with monthly dormant season visits. Field visits are carried out to check on the vineyard's progress throughout the season, scout for pests and diseases, assess irrigation requirements, plan the timing of key activities such as wire lifting, de-suckering, and leaf plucking. The frequency of visits and reports can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or as desired.
