What Others Are Saying About Westover Vineyard Advising:

 

“Our collaboration saved me from making costly mistakes up front that would have been hard to overcome.”

-Bruce Cross, Trillium Vineyards, Bremen Georgia

 

 

"I was blessed to have Fritz assist us with site preparation in 2012 and have been a client ever since.  Our collaboration saved me from making costly mistakes up front that would have been hard to overcome.  We enjoy a very professional relationship but on a personal level.  I know I have the freedom to contact Fritz with the overarching matters as well as the mundane everyday items of concern.  We have taken the collaboration to a higher level as we conduct an in-depth research project in a joint effort with the University of Georgia on PD resistant varieties of grapes on three different training systems.  It has been a great learning opportunity for us and we look forward to continuing our relationship."

 

“Fritz is simply the best...We could grow grapes without him but why would we?"

-Katy Jane Seaton, Farmhouse Vineyards, Meadow Texas

 

 

"Fritz is simply the best. He communicates flawlessly and effectively with all the personalities in our operation and his attention to what matters to us as individuals is unparalleled. We could grow grapes without him but why would we?"

 

"Fritz is a valuable part of our team, not only by helping us with day to day vineyard operations and planning, but also by keeping us on the cutting edge of where Viticulture is going." 

-Jeff Landry, Landry Vineyards, West Monroe Louisiana

 

"I first met Fritz while sitting in a Texas Wine and Grape conference seminar that he was teaching.  He was explaining a problem we were experiencing first hand with growing Blanc Du Bois and he was providing a solution to the problem which came as a great relief to me.  Several years later, in an effort to further increase the quality and production of our vineyards, we hired Fritz as a Viticulturist Consultant.  Immediately, Fritz became a valuable part of our team.  We fine-tuned our spray program, looked more closely at Micro-Nutrient deficiencies, soil fertility, fungus and disease issues and more.  Numerous times I have called Fritz with vineyard questions and not only has he been very responsive, but his answers are well developed and informed.  At Landry Vineyards, we are convinced that the only way that an industry and a winery is going to have sustainable growth, is by taking serious the endeavor of growing wine grapes in their region.  Fritz is a valuable part of our team, not only by helping us with day to day vineyard operations and planning, but also by keeping us on the cutting edge of where Viticulture is going."

 

"Fritz's choice on the location of the vineyard saved our harvest over the past two years when we experienced over 86 inches of rain at our site."

-Yvonne Ward-Hughes, Grovener Estate Vineyards, Fayetteville Texas 

 

 

"In 2007 Fritz Westover first visited our farm.  Fritz tested the soil at two suitable locations and based on the results of the soil analysis he suggested the area located at the entrance to the property.  Fritz's choice on the location of the vineyard saved our harvest over the past two years when we experienced over 86 inches of rain at our site from April 2015 to April 2016.  Our site had the runoff to stop the roots [from] sitting in stagnant water, and Fritz's exact recommendation of spray schedules saved our harvests.  It has been an absolute pleasure working with Fritz, and we look forward to the next 10 years of sound professional advice to bring in our harvests at our peaceful Texas vineyard."

 

"Fritz has taken on Mason County and become the eyes and ears of Mason County winegrowers. We would highly recommend his service to anyone running a vineyard of any size."

-Jeanie McLaughlin, Robert Clay Vineyards, Mason Texas

 

"We consider ourselves lucky to have Fritz, and his wealth of knowledge, at arms length.  We are always able to reach him via phone or through Face-Time (if needed).  He has helped us diagnose issues, give advice on how to deal with them, and keep us on top of a spray program.  Fritz has also taken on Mason County and become the eyes and ears of Mason County winegrowers.  We would highly recommend his service to anyone running a vineyard of any size."
