Of course, caring for our environment and operating sustainably extends beyond organic farming and winemaking. Here’s an example of other sustainable practices we employ:
Use of natural grasses and composts to improve vineyard soils.
Program in place to grow native trees that promote beneficial insect species (including mapping and measurement).
Preservation of natural bushlands and use of lookout posts throughout vineyards to support native hawks and eagles (controlling bird species that are harmful to vineyard crops).
Rainwater collection tanks used to supply water to winery and cellar door.
Solar energy used to power approximately 60% of winery and cellar door needs.
