We don't just set ourselves high standards when we're making wine – we also look for opportunities to measure ourselves against industry best practice. These are some of the programmes and organisations that are helping us do that.
Gladstone Vineyard is an accredited vineyard and winery of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. The programme sets industry standards which provide the framework for winemakers to continually work towards improving all aspects of their performance in terms of environmental, social and economic sustainability in both the vineyard and the winery.
BioGro is New Zealand's leading organic certifier, and has been supporting the transition of our Home and Carters blocks to full organic management. BioGro's internationally accredited certification standards provide assurance that organic produce is genuine and free of GMO, pesticides and animal testing.
