KLIMA founders Nigel George and Marcus Wickham are both Grape growers themselves with extensive experience in Cool climate viticulture. Here is what they have to say:

“As Grape growers ourselves we understand that viticulture is a tough business, there are so many things that can affect your business; Rain at harvest, drought, cold weather at flowering, hail, frost, bunch rots, bird damage, market pressures…… the list is endless. With this in mind it gives us a huge amount of satisfaction to bring to market KLIMA products that help grape growers make their businesses more profitable and their lives more enjoyable”
