Keeping things green
Our green credentials - making sustainable wine
The GreenHeads Movement
We might be RedHeads by name, but did you know we’re GreenHeads by nature?
As we rebuilt and renovated our winery, sustainability was at the heart of every decision. We asked the Environmental Protection Authority to get involved in our vision for a sustainable winery. Could other wineries follow in our footsteps and create the sustainable winemaking industry Australia deserves?
What began as a no-nonsense commitment to creating a more sustainable future for our winery has now become GreenHeads Movement – and we’re not the only ones involved with sustainable wine.
Following our win at the 2020 Drinks Business Green Awards, Patrick Schmitt MW, the Editor-in-Chief of The Drinks Business, said:
“We felt this company deserved commending for being 97% powered by self-generated and stored renewable energy from solar and storage batteries, leading to a saving of 22 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year. We also admired its ambition to be carbon neutral and the steps it takes to achieve that goal, including an extensive audit of its carbon emissions.”
Timeline of our green revolution
Our green pact to making sustainable wine
There’s plenty to be done to help save the planet while making delicious small-batch, sustainable wine.
Here’s some of what we do.
Protecting the bees
High, Pitched Roof
As we work with a variety of grapes, keeping the tanks clean is a priority. We’ve built them big enough to clean by hand with biodegradable cleaning agents, keeping harmful chemicals out of the equation.
