“We are thrilled our winery and vineyards are all Sustainable Winegrowing Australia certified as we lead into vintage 2023. Sustainability is and will continue to be a priority for us, whether it be in the vineyard and winery through environmental, social and economic aspects of the business – protecting the distinctive land, robust vines and quality wines we produce.
You will start to see the Sustainable Winegrowing Australia certification trust mark proudly displayed on our back labels from this year’s vintage 2023 onwards. This will resonate with consumers and trade, globally.
Most of all, we hope that we can contribute to help shaping the Australian wine community and its practices for the better”.
