  • Sustainable Certificates:Sustainability has been a core value since the inception of the vineyard. We have solar panels on the roof of our winery building producing most of the electricity used. We do not use chemicals for spraying relying on old fashioned sulphur based products. We do not use chemical fertilizers but instead sow nitrogen producing broad beans. In terms of bio diversity less then half of the land we own is planted with wines, with the balance left wild.
  • Sustainable Practice:Yes
