Vintage Harvesters Limited is owned by Jason and Vanessa Tripe, the business operates in conjunction with JTC Viticulture Limited, a full service viticulture contracting and management operation.
Other than the core 16 permanent staff, extra hands to make up the 50 required for the harvest season are sourced from local vineyards and are generally keen young people who take great pride in working for the company; however there is the odd grey hair in the team to add a touch of maturity.
The philosophy of the company is to be technically innovative. Our harvesters are meticulously maintained and cleaned, before each season every machine is stripped and undergoes an extensive rebuild program. This ensures minimum downtime during vintage when we need to be working virtually non-stop for 5 weeks.
