Organic Farming Practices.
Twenty-five years ago Rod McDonald arrived in Hawkes Bay with everything he owned packed into the back seat of a small car. He got a job working as a cellarhand, cleaning the winery floor and scrubbing the inside of tanks. The rest is history. He learned everything he knows through experience and hands on work. Today he makes some of the best New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc we have come across and has a team of 5 working under him. Hard work really does pay off!
“Wildflowers blooming between the vines signal something natural is happening in our vineyards. These vineyards have a harmony, an energy and uniqueness about them that we believe you can taste in our wines. Growing wildflowers encourages beneficial insects and creates wildlife above and below the ground helping to create a diverse and complex eco-system, which in turn helps grow healthy vines and grapes with natural resilience. This is the basis of sustainable and organic grape growing, maximizing nature’s own strengths by managing our practices to ensure a pristine growing environment.”
