The distinctive soil, site and mesoclimate of our vineyards lie at the heart of our winemaking style. Ecological balance is more than a social responsibility, it is good grape growing and wine making practice. In addition to being the first fully accredited Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand® vineyard & winery on Waiheke, Destiny Bay has built energy efficient structures, developed environmentally sensitive vineyard and winemaking practices, and planted over 500 native trees. All Destiny Bay wines are sealed with 100% natural cork from sustainable forests that help offset carbon emissions. Furthermore, natural cork has a carbon footprint 1/24th of the carbon footprint of a screwcap. All of these practices are aimed at reducing our carbon footprint, impact on the environment, and consumption of fossil fuels.
