Working in harmony with nature not only ensures the sustainability of our wine making, but also of the land and life upon it. We support the Marlborough Falcon Trust and their efforts to rehabilitate & breed for release back into the wild, the endangered New Zealand Falcon (Karearea). During the summer season three times a week* an advocacy Falcon demonstration is held at our vineyard arena, with flying and glove work - an opportunity to get up close, meet and learn about this special native raptor.
