ABOUT LG VINEYARD SERVICES
I began my viticultural career in 1990 when I managed the family vineyard, working together with my grandfather Otto Grocke. Grape growing is in my blood, you could say, as I am the sixth generation in my family to produce wine grapes. My great great great grandfather settled in Krondorf in the 1850s. Shortly after that the first Grocke vineyard was planted.
My enthusiasm for contracting began when I helped my father Warren with his hay contracting business in the mid1980s. Naturally, these paths led me to combine the love for contracting and passion for vineyards. So began LGVS in August 2001.
LGVS has grown and evolved over the last 22 years, and over the years I have developed a passion for soil health in vineyards. I truly believe great wine begins at ground level. A balanced soil grows a healthy vine, making it less susceptible to pests and diseases, resulting in more consistent yields and higher quality wine.
In 2020, I made the decision to focus primarily on soil conditioning services such as under-vine compost or mulch banding and under-vine straw mulching, while also including fungicide spraying and mowing to our range of services as well.
Thirty years of grape growing has given me valuable experience and knowledge. Working together with vineyard owners, LGVS provides a high quality vineyard contracting service. Our equipment is up to date, maintained to the highest standards and all our work is carried out with the needs of the vineyard owner in mind.Customer satisfaction is our priority!
LGVS is proud to be involved in producing exceptional quality wine grapes in the Barossa and we look forward to an exciting future for our amazing wine region.
