Gladstone Vineyard - Making premium wine, Wairarapa
Going organic

BioGro No  5461

We have always had the philosophy that great wine is underpinned by the health of the land and the vines. With minimal intervention, we can allow the grapes to truly express the season, the soil and the area – the terroir.

In 2013 we decided to take the leap and transition the Home and Carters blocks to full organic. In 2014 they had their first season under full organic management. The blocks are certified organic with BioGro NZ and are currently in the transition period to full organic status. As the blocks were already managed using a lot of organic principles the transition is easy and the vines have handled it very well.
