Professional Vineyard Management
Barossa, Limestone Coast & Adelaide Hills
Stirling Vineyard Services (SVS) was created in 1993 and now manages nearly 1,000 hectares of vineyards throughout South Australia. We are headquartered and manage vineyards in the Barossa with operations in the Limestone Coast and the Adelaide Hills.
