The incredible success and development of Vinescapes has led to strategic restructuring and addition of further expertise to the team. In the latest appointment Jonathan Rodwell joins the team as Vineyard Manager. Further recruitment is expected soon to support Vinescapes’ growth strategy and services.

Vinescapes is now established as one of the leading vineyard and winery consultancies in the UK providing world class research, climate science, strategic and operational expertise to grape growers and wine producers. As part of the restructuring, and to provide the best services and support for clients, the vineyard management division Veraison Ltd, has now been incorporated into Vinescapes Ltd – and offers comprehensive ‘Ground to Glass’ services including bespoke vineyard creation, vineyard management, consultancy, mentoring and training.

Jonathan Rodwell has over 40 years of experience in developing and managing vineyard and winery operations around the world. He is particularly focused on specialisation in vineyard resilience, re-generative agriculture, precision viticulture, and the elements required for excellence in ‘wine growing’.

Dr Alistair Nesbitt, CEO, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to our team and feel fortunate as Jonathan epitomises a rare 360-degree approach to wine production applying his breadth and depth of experience to promote the synergy of viticulture, oenology, and terroir identity. He brings a multifaceted and dynamic approach to today’s winegrowing and production challenges.”
