What is Organic, Sustainable and Biodynamic ?

  • *Organic - grapes that are certified organic under the wine regions governing body. In general this means no synthetic pesticides, chemical herbicides, GMO's or additives may be used in production of these wines. In addition, there are no added sulphites though naturally occurring sulphites will still be present. 
  • *Sustainable - refers to a range of practices that are economically, environmentally and socially sound. The aim here is to have as little impact on the land as possible
  • *Biodynamic - refers to practices that create a self-sustaining system. Natural materials, soils and composts are used to sustain the vineyard. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are forbidden for the sake of soil fertility.
