Much like the graceful roe deer that roams our landscape, we aim to leave only the lightest footprint on our wonderful environment.
Minimising our environmental impact and maximising conservation and biodiversity lies at the core of everything that we do. We have enormous respect for our beautiful surroundings and aim to protect our environment as best we can and in every way possible.
We're incredibly proud to be a founder member of the Sustainable Wines of Great Britain (SWGB) certification scheme.
Our experienced viticulture team's unwavering commitment to sustainable vineyard management has earned us this certification, showcasing our dedication to environmentally responsible practices.
IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE SOILOur dedication to sustainability begins with the very soil beneath our vines. We've made the conscious choice to reduce herbicides and minimise the use of pesticides in our vineyard management, allowing us to nurture a harmonious relationship with the land we cherish.
A HAVEN OF BIODIVERSITYWe have embraced numerous sustainable initiatives to help strengthen the natural ecosystem, from introducing beehives, bird houses, insect hotels, and reptile habitats as well as planting wildflower meadows and welcoming a flock of sheep during winter. Through our commitment to biodiversity, we aim to support the ecosystem that sustains our vineyards and the surrounding environment.
Our action extends beyond the vineyards. We use Absolute Greenline neck foils, which are produced from plant-based polyethene derived from sugar cane and printed using water-based ink. Our wine boxes are fully recyclable, and we are wholly committed to working with suppliers who also share our environmental ethos.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
Standing still is not in our nature. Our path towards sustainability is a continuous journey, and we are committed to pushing the boundaries and exploring new ways to adapt our practices to minimise our environmental impact and maximise conservation and biodiversity.
