Committed to protecting the environment of our picturesque backyard, the team at Mitchelton is a proud custodian of a sustainable and distinct eco-system inspired by our ever-present neighbour, the Goulburn River. Bordered by red gums and indigenous flora and fauna – the river plays an intrinsic part of a sensitive natural cycle, which inspires a holistic approach to winemaking.
To further minimise our environmental impact, we have adopted several pioneering Environmental Management Systems. These include the introduction of an innovative wastewater wetlands process which uses indigenous native reed species to provide natural filtration of water used to irrigate the vineyard, minimal use of synthetic pesticides, composting of winery bi-product waste and the responsible resourcing of recycled packaging.
