Sustainable Practices

Our environmental objectives are to:

Respect the soil
We plant cover crops between rows to eliminate erosion.
We handpick the grapes to minimise soil compaction.
We aim towards the primary use of biological practises to avoid overuse of chemical sprays.
As part of a rehabilitation programme we remove alien plants to promote growth of indigenous vegetation such as fynbos.

Cut water use
We use vineyard moisture probes in conjunction with a drip system to better use water resources.
Our Groenekloof and Piekenierskloof vineyards are dryland vineyards.
We promote responsible and efficient water use in the winery, the tasting room and administration building.

Recycle
We choose sustainable packaging alternatives and recycle all our glass, cardboard and paper.
We recycle our glass, cardboard, paper and plastic throughout all areas of the company.
