Organic Certification

Soil

At Stonecroft, we are committed to organic practices. All three of our vineyards and the winery have organic certification through AsureQuality and IFOAM accreditation. This means we do not use herbicides or pesticides in the vineyards. We use an under-vine weeder which helps to control weeds without the use of chemicals, together with disking and some cultivation. We also use compost and seaweed to improve the health of the soil and encourage beneficial insects by planting appropriate companion plants. Wild flowers have been sowed every seventh row. All of our winery organic waste such as skins, stems and marc is returned to the vineyard. Pruning cuttings are mulched into the rows.
