Environmental Responsibility

The Estate vineyard is managed sustainably by John Van Der Linden. Under his guidance, soil management includes planting of chicory to manage vigour, mulching on the stony soils and maintaining micronutrient balance via applications of seaweed.

Pest management is largely organic with inter-row plantings of phaecelia and buckwheat. Traditional sprays are used which focus on prevention of fungal disease rather than curatives.
