07 Oct Organic Dreams.

It’s been a while since we’ve jumped on here, so today I thought I would outline RM’s thoughts on organics as it is rather important to us:
“We started our organic journey in 2013 and, as of this year, we’re farming 100% organically with around 50% BioGro Certified and 50% in conversion.
It’s been a ride for us, with a few bumps along the way, but nothing that wasn’t an opportunity for us to learn and grow. I can’t imagine we’ll ever feel as though we have arrived as our vineyards are constantly in change and our challenges are dynamic.
We aspire to a grow grapes that show the ebb and flow of living within a healthy ecosystem, producing fruit with character and individuality. A result of our vines being challenged to look after themselves rather than relying on us for synthetic curatives. Those are the kind of grapes that make the kind of wines we want to drink, share and tell the story of making wine in New Zealand.
Wine reflects deeply where it comes from and how it’s been made. That’s what makes wine a unique window on the health, vitality and quality of the environment where our grapes are grown.” RM
