Randall Wine Group wines will display the Sustainable Winegrowing Australia trust mark for the 2023 vintage.
The Randall Wine Group have been successfully certified against the Freshcare Australian Wine Industry Standard of Sustainable Practice standards for vineyards and wineries.
“Sustainability is and will continue to be a priority for us, whether it be in the vineyard and winery through environmental, social and economic aspects of the business – protecting the distinctive land, robust vines and quality wines we produce,” said Steven Trigg, managing director of the Randall Wine Group.
The certification has allowed the Randall Wine Group to be admitted membership to Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, the national sustainability program for grapegrowers and winemakers. The program, governed by the Australian Wine Research Institute, Australian Grape & Wine, and Wine Australia, encourages best practice for sustainability in the industry.
The Randall Wine Group owns 12 vineyards, including the Seppeltsfield Estate in the Barossa and Penny’s Hill Estate in McLaren Vale, alongside other smaller vineyards. Their holdings span 5 regions, comprising over 9000 acres of vineyard.
“We are thrilled our winery and vineyards are all Sustainable Winegrowing Australia certified as we lead into vintage 2023,” Trigg added. “You will start to see the Sustainable Winegrowing Australia certification trust mark proudly displayed on our back labels from this year’s vintage 2023 onwards. This will resonate with consumers and trade, globally. Most of all, we hope that we can contribute to help shaping the Australian wine community and its practices for the better”.
