Certified Organic, Carbon Neutral, Vegan Friendly… we are dedicated to Mother Nature.
All Grosset vineyards are ‘A-Grade Organic’ – as accredited by Australian Certified Organic (ACO). The winery is also certified to process organic fruit. All wine is bottled on-site in our state-of-the-art bottling facility (ACO certified). These practices bolster the long-term viability of the vineyards by promoting healthy eco-systems and renewable resources.
We are also proud to boast a net zero carbon footprint. This is achieved by offsetting all emissions aided by a high reliance on solar power and through our own re-vegetation program. We also practice organic and zero chemical input in our estate owned vineyards and in the winery (with exception of sulphur dioxide as a preservative). Nothing happens during the winemaking process that could be considered anything but ‘natural’. This means all wines released to date are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Since 2007 we have planted trees on land adjoining our Springvale and Alea Vineyards. Only 20 per cent of this land is planted to vines; the remainder is dedicated to the regeneration of natural vegetation. Planting progresses at a rate of approximately two hectares per annum (in 2018 more than 6000 trees had been planted). Together, these activities offset the carbon emissions that could be attributable to the wine produced each vintage.
