Environmental Responsibility

Whilst we’ve learnt from organics, biodynamics and natural wine practices, we’re not dictated by one school of thought. We believe in healthy and sustainable vineyard practices, and a winemaking transparency with as little as possible between the vine and finished wine. We grow all our own grapes, and whilst copper is allowed in organic viticulture, we use minimal copper treatments.

We don’t use herbicides. We employ fish and seaweed applications. We make our own compost to support the whole vineyard biology. It’s not just about better water retention, but about healthy soils with good microbial activity. It’s a whole ecosystem thinking to make healthier, disease-resistant vines.

We’re using alternate varieties, new clones and blends to make naturally balanced wines. From vine to bottle, the wine takes its course, hands free.
