Each year the The Nourish Vegan Awards recognise the most loved vegan brands in Australia and New Zealand, shining a spotlight on the best plant-based living as voted by vegan and plant-forward consumers.

Winning for its quality, environmental impact and positive steps towards plant based living, De Bortoli Wines 17 Trees has been highlighted as a range that is committed to making veganism easy and joyful.

17 Trees was created with a purpose. It is not only delicious wine that has won multiple gold medals both domestically and internationally, it also carries a corporate social responsibility whereby 1 tree is being planted with every 6 bottles sold from the range. To date, over 66,000 trees have been planted globally with this initiative.

Executive Director and family member, Victor De Bortoli discusses the importance of sustainability and movement towards plant based living; “You no longer need to choose between a product that’s good tasting and one that’s good for the environment”.

The De Bortoli family started its sustainability journey in 2005 with the aim to leave a sustainable future for the next generation. In 2021, De Bortoli was recognised as a fully certified member of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia.

Fast forward to 2022, winning the Best Vegan Wine at The Nourish Vegan Awards shows an acknowledgment by the consumer for our sustainability journey so far.
