*The light has always been something special on our farm - and with such incredible light, it makes sense to harness it into our winemaking.

This struck a chord with us as the sustainability of our family farm is very important to us, from our innovative and eco-friendly water treatment plant to the current development of our very own wetland.

All that, and of course, our solar panel cells, which weve installed across from the the vineyards in a bid to become self-reliant for power as well as to continue the evolution of greening our farm. The panels feed directly into our grid.

You know what they say'Wine is sunlight, held together by water.'
