Why it matters
For grapegrowers and winemakers
Embracing sustainable practices helps create a purposeful brand story. One that is known for making exceptional wine that supports a greater good. Sustainable practices help nurture the land and pass it on in a better condition, creating value and security for generations to come.
For retailers and distributors
Working with sustainable-minded growers and winemakers helps to create mutually beneficial partnerships through your entire value chain. It also provides opportunities to replenish your range with sustainable products that resonate with the ever-growing number of socially conscious consumers.
By supporting grapegrowers and winemakers who are committed to producing wine that will reduce environmental impact, it protects our people and our communities. And thanks to a trustworthy, research-backed certification program, sustainable practices help to shape the Australian wine industry for the better.
We are convinced that our efforts in protecting our natural resources reflect in the quality of wines we make. Quite simply, if we’re to focus on excellence in winemaking, it absolutely requires excellence in environmental management – the two are inseparable.
The program is recognised industry-wide and by our customers. I use the metrics to find areas to improve. If you change a variable you will change your outcome.

The program acknowledges a one-size-fits all approach to sustainability doesn’t best meet the needs of diverse business models. It allows its wine industry partners to improve the economic, social, and environmental aspects of their business decisions to build resilience across the industry.
