Wine Production

Growing Better Vines with TerraVesco: A great wine starts with the right soil. Top wine growers need to be able to stress their vines to make great tasting wines. This can be challenging if the vines have been weakened by poor soils. So how can we restore soil health and help nature play a lead role in growing healthy vines?

Over two decades,  TerraVesco has developed a proprietary process for producing a consistent, high quality Vermicompost, an organic and microbiologically rich soil amendment, with proven results for wine producers. Our Vermicompost has high microbial diversity, is free from harmful pathogens and weed seeds, meets National Organic Program (NOP) regulations and is an effective way to build soil biology as well as promote plant vigor.

In working with wine producers throughout California, we are seeing the following benefits:

•    Improved transplant rates
•    Increased water holding capacity of soil
•    Better fruit canopy

Application Rates
