RECYCLED NEW ZEALAND GLASS

In an industry dominated by coal-powered glass produced overseas, we have chosen to bottle our wines in New Zealand, using New Zealand-sourced, recycled glass, reducing our carbon footprint and supporting our local industry.

POWERED BY SOLAR

Solar energy at Grove Mill, Vavasour, Te Kairanga, Martinborough Vineyard and Lighthouse Gin drastically reduces our use of energy from the main grid.

INDUSTRY-LEADING WATER CONSERVATION SYSTEMS

Winery wastewater at all wineries is recycled to irrigate our vineyards and native plantings through a system held up as benchmarks in Marlborough and Central Otago.

SMALL FOOTPRINTS​

Our small wineries are positioned amongst ​our vineyards, reducing the carbon footprint of incoming grapes during harvest, and integrating into the landscape.

Restoring Local Habitats

The wetlands we have established beside our central bottling and warehousing facility plays an important role in maintaining a healthy eco-system and is a thriving habitat for local fauna. At our most recent planting day 700 beneficial native species were planted and 58 predators were removed.
