"LGVS in my opinion is the most professional and well structured contractor in the Barossa Valley."
"LGVS in my opinion is the most professional and well structured contractor in the Barossa Valley. The equipment is the best of the best and the operators are very switched on and provide a great customer experience. The TracMap system provides great information that ultimately allows you to make more informed decisions in the vineyard.
The Pellenc Selectiv’ Process is a great option for those who are trying to streamline the process in the winery. Using the Selectiv’ on-board process, I am able to tip the fruit directly into the fermenter for fermentation, producing a Carbonic Maceration character that I really like in my wines. You get 70-80% whole berries in the fermenter after harvest, which is as good as you would expect from hand picked, destemmed fruit."

"Provides the service and care that is very rare to find these days."
"I believe that LG Vineyard Services run by Lincoln Grocke, provides the service and care that is very rare to find in these days. They are friendly, professional and provide the best service.
Since the beginning of machine harvest we have engaged LG for the above reason, plus they always looking to better their service by investing in the latest equipment on the market. The last two years with the Pellenc Selectiv Process Grape Harvester - you can unload the grapes straight in the ferment and start wine making just as I did with my 2015 Shiraz.
I have no hesitation to recommend your service Lincoln."
