Sustainability Profile

"Our endeavour to make the best possible wines both now and into the future, means sustaining the soils from which those wines come. This is fundamental to our whole operation. As custodians of the land, our farming approach is biological in nature, with a view to being organically certified in the near future. As a family owned and operated business, we look to sustain, regenerate and improve the land for future generations."

Land and Viticultural practices

We use organic products for pest and disease control and with careful monitoring have reduced our reliance on copper, in order to avoid copper toxicity in our soils. We hope to further reduce the need for copper by trialling Casurina tea, sourced and made on site. Organically certified composts and kelp products form the basis of any fertiliser inputs. 

No systemic chemicals are used on our site.

No synthetic herbicide has been used in the vineyard since 2008. 

We use an under-vine slasher to control seasonal grass growth.

We use Rye, straw mulch under-vine, which was grown and threshed on farm.

Optimising vine and soil health means nurturing an ecosystem that is able to promote and sustain biodiversity. We maintain permanent swards within vine rows and under-vine, reducing soil erosion and supporting beneficial insect populations. Machinery movements are kept to a minimum and thoughtfully timed when nature allows, to reduce soil compaction. We use Merino sheep twice a year to mow under-vine, providing natural fertiliser and further reducing tractor passes.

We Aim To

Reduce winery wastage wherever possible.

Improve wastewater systems to minimise the impact on our surrounding environment.

Continue to work on solutions to minimise energy use and work towards renewable energy use.


All water used in our winemaking and cleaning processes is fresh rainwater, collected and stored on site. In very dry years, we have a backup bore system for cleaning floors.

All non-alcoholic grape marc and stems from the winemaking process are fed to sheep and cattle on the farm. All alcoholic marc is used for compost on site


We source Australian made wherever possible – a philosophy long held by the winery. This is especially true with glass, whose environmental footprint can be large. We continue to work with suppliers towards the highest amount of recycled content in all dry goods.  We use 70% recycled board in our boxes and are now using Biogone pallet wrap and tape – all fully landfill biodegradable, which does not break down to microplastics.
