Technical Services

The technical team at JTC viticulture assists the grower to maximise the quality of the grapes produced through the use of best industry practise and the most recent R&D developments.

For all our managed vineyards we provide yield estimations using field counts of buds and bunches and a computer yield estimation model we have developed over the years.
This vital information is provided to wineries and the owner, after pruning, at flowering and veraison, and allows accurate decisions to be made on crop load, winery space allocation and for budgeting purposes.
