Precision Viticulture

Precision viticulture was introduced to Mission Estate in 2006.  We were the first winery in New Zealand to commercially use sensors, linked to GPS units, which measure variations in the soil and grapevine quality across the vineyards.  Using the data gathered by the sensors, we produce vineyard maps which allow us to identify and isolate areas of greatest fruit potential, areas that we then manage with great care.  The end result is a more consistent, higher quality fruit that we use in our ultra-premium wines.
