Wrights Vineyard and Winery takes a holistic approach to the vineyard, applying natural farming principles on our farm. We raise our plants in the same way you bring up a child. In that you have to nurture them, care for them, feed them and ensure they are living a well balanced life.
We achieve this through a mixture of methods, such as composting teas, homeopathic sprays, mulching, organic matter, increasing bio-diversity, positive micro-organisisms, mechanical weed maintenance, free roaming ducks, and planting a mixture of plants on the farm.
Our vineyards and wines are certified organic through AsureQuality New Zealand and adhere to the IFOAM standards.
To help New Zealand and the world become more organic or to apply natural farming techniques, we will be listing the methods we have used on our farm and some of the hurdles we have overcome or have not. Feel free to use these methods yourself or refer other people to them. We also have a newsletter, that comes out every two months, which keeps you up to date with Wrights Vineyard and Winery, useful information on organics and the wine industry.
