ORGANIC AND NATURAL
OUR COMMITMENT TO ORGANIC WINEGROWING
We believe great wines originate from a pure terroir, shaped by an eco-friendly environment and natural winemaking. In 2007, we committed to certifying our entire estate through Biogro - NZ Organic Certification to prove that high-quality wines can be enjoyed without harming the environment. Marlborough's dry climate, market by strong winds and cool nights, suits organic practices, albeit requiring substantially more manual labour. Our healthy and vibrant fruit allow us to craft some of New Zealand's most age-worthy wines that authentically express the unique terroir and a profound 'sense of place'. Our organic philosophy extends beyond winemaking, encompassing a holistic commitment to sustainability.
Therese Herzog - Owner and General Manager
"We are deeply connected to our vineyard, and it brings us joy to see our team working in a healthy environment. Having a vineyard with functional biodiversity and a thriving ecosystem is immensely satisfying. Strong, naturally resilient plants need no pesticides. Tasks, where ever possible, are aligned with the astrological calendar. Our commitment is to leave this land in a healthier state than when we found it, ensuring it's ready for the next generation. We take pride in contributing positively to our planet's well-being."
Hans Herzog - Owner and Vigneron
