Sourcing fruit from some of the best vineyards in the Hunter, Hilltops and Canberra wine regions in New South Wales, we engage passionate growers that work tirelessly to deliver the best fruit possible. Our growers also firmly believe in sustainable vineyard practices, with a view to leaving the land in a better condition for the next generation.
To craft high quality wines & build a sustainable business that combines commerce with social conscience
People and places matter to us. We are a boutique, family owned winery that strives for continuous improvement. We aim to respect the environment, our growers, our customers, our staff & the community. As we grow & become more successful, so too will our ability to make a meaningful difference to the lives of all our stakeholders.
Sustainability & Community partnerships
Sustainability, and it’s three pillars—economic, social, and environmental, has become a driving force for our organisation in recent years. It’s a concept that is at the heart of what we do, and guides many (if not all) of our key business decisions. Pursuing sustainability has led us to exciting community partnerships with Path 2 Change and 15 Trees—each delivering profound outcomes.
Path to Change
Homelessness has become one of the clearest expressions of inequality in Australia. We believe in an inclusive community that provides opportunity for all, with respect & dignity. We have partnered with Path 2 Change, who provide services for disadvantaged & homeless youth, because we believe shared leadership & true collaboration means we can be stronger & better together. We also believe that one of the best ways to break the cycle of homelessness, is to provide disadvantaged young people with the tools and experience to enter the workforce.
Our carbon neutral wine business now sits amongst leaders in a range of industries who have similarly identified the need to rapidly transform our national and global economies to ones built around carbon neutrality. In doing so, we are mitigating the effects of climate change, and helping to create a hopeful future for our children. We believe there really is nothing more important than this.
Beyond our carbon mitigation and offsetting efforts, we are further reducing our carbon footprint via our local partnership with 15 Trees. By purchasing well over 1000 native trees and shrubs, we are potentially removing over 60 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere every year. In fact, if this were added to our carbon offsetting calculations, we would be carbon negative! This is along with the myriad of other benefits that come with planting trees including the restoration of natural habitats, wildlife corridors, and depleted soils.
