Focus Viticulture Services

Vineyard redevelopment

Focus Viticulture has successfully redeveloped a number of Vineyards into producing super premium quality fruit. Learning state of the art techniques and practises from some the top producers has built a broad understanding of what is required for any individual Vineyard to reach its full potential. 

We specialise in:

  • soft pruning techniques,
  • organic conversion,
  • biodynamic principals,
  • biological farming, and
  • trellis redevelopment.

Vineyard establishment

The foundation of any successful venture is critical. At Focus Viticulture we can assist in planning every detail from site selection through to trellis design.

At Focus Viticulture we have a thorough understanding of wine growing, to determine:

  • best site selection,
  • clonal and root stock selection,
  • trellis design,
  • soil management,
  • frost protection, and
  • high density planting

Why Viticulture Management?

Wine grapes are fickle; it is critical that decisions are made at the right time to ensure that canopy management is precise. Even the smallest fluctuation in temperature can produce significant changes in the quality of the grape composition, which naturally carries through to the wine. We can suggest and implement strategies unique to your vineyard’s microclimate to maximise fruit quality.

Viticultural consulting and management ranges from vineyard establishment, management and redevelopment; site selection and biodynamic principals; right down to pest and disease monitoring, soil management, irrigation, spray programs and soft pruning techniques.
