True innovation puts nature at the forefront, that is why sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. It goes further than the expected environmental good practice, to mindfulness of the natural world we want to leave behind. Whether it is farming or winemaking, we believe in less intervention and restoring the environment using leading-edge science. Take less, use less, put back more – we imagine a future of less consumption as one with infinite possibilities.
Our green vineyard practices are holistic and include regeneration of soil (promoting soil life and balanced nutrition for plant and micro-organisms), and promoting a more balanced ecosystem of natural pests to combat harmful pests and diseases (biological control).
Incorporating cover crops is a sustainable practice that supports a healthier ecosystem and promotes soil health of the vineyards. Biological control through live beneficial insects forms a vital part of our integrated pest management program.
Biodiversity is another key to sustainable viticulture, which is why we go to great lengths to conserve our indigenous fauna and flora, especially the endangered Renosterveld fynbos which surrounds our vineyards.
A solar-powered winery and state-of-the-art waste water treatment ensure that we extend the softer impact beyond our winemaking to our environment.
