The Brown Family Wine Group understands that sustainability is essential for the longevity of its multi-generational company. They proudly announced the certification of their Tasmanian vineyards, Heathcote vineyard, and two winemaking sites in Milawa and Launceston under the Sustainable Winegrowing Australia scheme (SWA).
Brett McClen, Head of Viticulture and Sustainability at Brown Family Wine Group, said, "This certification is a significant milestone in our sustainability journey, and we are incredibly proud of it."
"Moving forward, we will continue to build on this achievement by seeking SWA certification for our remaining company-owned vineyards at Milawa, Banksdale, and Mystic Park in FY24," McClen added.
Dean Carroll, CEO of Brown Family Wine Group, acknowledges the tremendous effort that went into obtaining this certification. He said, "It's been truly inspiring to see the level of dedication to sustainability in our viticulture and winemaking processes."
Brown Family Wine Group's commitment to sustainability in winemaking reflects a growing trend in the wine industry towards more environmentally and socially responsible practices. The industry seeks to reduce its impact on the planet and ensure a viable future for wine production.
"I believe that by prioritising sustainability, we can not only protect the environment but also enhance the quality of our wines and improve the long-term viability of our business. I look forward to seeing our sustainability efforts drive positive change within our company and across the wine industry as a whole." Carroll said.
