OUR MULTI-SKILLED VINEYARD MANAGER IS TO REPRESENT NELSON

Do you think you could compete in Horti-Sports; operate a Fendt Vario tractor safely; budget and do due-diligence on purchasing a small vineyard in the Lower Wairau; demonstrate multiple pruning styles including Sylvoz, Spur and VSP; dig a metre deep hole and install an Ecotrellis Conventional strainer assembly and intermediates; answer a Quickfire Quiz on viticulture topics; AND deliver a dinner speech??

All in a day’s work for Laurie Stradling, our vineyard manager, who yesterday competed alongside entrants from Marlborough in the Bayer  Young Viticulturist of the Year 2017.

A big shout out to Laurie  who qualified to represent Nelson at the National Final!
