About Our Partners
In 2000, Stan Grant initiated Progressive Viticulture, a vineyard consulting company, to help clients optimize wine grape quality, ensure vine health, and maximize vineyard profibility. To achieve these ends, Stan uses an integrated approach, treating vineyards as individual wine grape production systems, each with its unique set of factors that include climate, soil, vineyard design, and management history. His vineyard management recommendations integrate crop, canopy and soil considerations with environmental conditions and detailed observations. Over the years, Progressive Viticulture has helped vineyard operations achieve their wine grape production goals, ranging from the very small to some of the largest in California.
Colligere-Progressive Vineyard Management Services combine the vineyard management expertise of Colligere Farm Management with the viticulture expertise of Progressive Viticulture. Together , they have the capability to meet all of your vineyard needs.
