More than just wine
Our practices are born out of a philosophy to tread lightly in our farming, winemaking and community. While we manage our vineyard organically, we have many other projects on our property that require our daily attention to ensure that the tenets of sustainability hold fast. Aside from the vines, we tend to a large-scale revegetation planting, chickens, sheep and bees. Along with the "Bee Friendly" certified honey we produce, a veggie garden and newly planted orchard will supply our urban cellar door. By supporting a myriad of flora and fauna species, we aim to achieve a balance in biodiversity that benefits us all.
We have a long way to go towards our energy conservation goals, but have started with the use of electric vehicles where possible - check out our adorable vineyard buggies which get plugged in every night ready for the team to use the following day.
EcoVineyards Biodiversity Program
It's an honour to be one of four vineyards selected in the Margaret River region to participate in the national EcoVineyards projects run by Dr Mary Retallack and Wine Australia. The program aims to grow grapevine resilience by using a diversity of plant species to improve the soil and attract beneficial insects into the vineyard.
In an effort to return a portion of our property to native species, we've planted over 50,000 trees, shrubs and grasses. When we're finished, we'll have almost 4 acres of reclaimed bushland ready to host an equally diverse range of animals looking for a home.
The best way to predict the future is to create it...
