We have a philosophy of adhering to sustainable viticultural practices and for the last 15 years we have participated in the local accreditation programs and the national programs – Entwine and SAW.
Sustainability is the premise of meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future generations. Sustainable winegrowing is a comprehensive set of practices that are environmentally sound, socially equitable and economically viable. These sustainable vineyard and winery practices conserve water and energy, maintain healthy soil, protect air and water quality, enhance relations with employees and communities, preserve local ecosystems and wildlife habitat, and improve the economic vitality of vineyards and wineries.
Sustainable Winegrowing Australia is the merging of the Entwine and SAW programs and commences on 1 July 2019. Sustainable Winegrowing Australia will provide a unified sustainability framework for all Australian grapegrowers and winemakers to demonstrate their sustainability credentials, benchmark performance and identify opportunities for improvements. We will be working within the guidelines of this expanded program.
