where it all began

Vinetech Vineyard Management Company was founded in 2013 by Dustin Tarpine, Steven Becker, and Jim Quarella. The original and enduring mission of the company is to provide high-quality, precision viticulture services to the rapidly growing wine industry of New Jersey. While Jim has parted ways with the company to better focus on growing his own brand, Bellview Winery, we appreciate the help and guidance lent by Jim during the formation of the early days of our company. The company is now directed and managed by Dustin Tarpine, Steven Becker, and Robert Becker.

Since its inception, Vinetech has established and manages over 50 acres of vineyard located throughout southern New Jersey. Vinetech currently manages 5 client vineyards, totaling to just under 50 acres. In addition to these vineyards, we also work with local wineries to perform individual establishment or management services as needed. As the industry grows and matures, we hope to grow alongside and make ourselves an ally and a resource to the winegrowers of New Jersey. 

We provide consistent, reliable, high-quality services.

The mission of Vinetech Vineyard Management Solutions is to provide consistent, reliable, high-quality vineyard development and management services to the rapidly growing wine industry of New Jersey. The wineries in the Garden State have shown tremendous ability to produce fine wines. As a company, we are dedicated to helping existing vineyards and wineries become more productive, while lowering the barrier to entry for prospective growers and winery owners.
