Terryn and Andrew Hickinbotham have been supporting local Peninsula based organisations, mostly charities, for many years. Since the beginning of 2006 they have raised & donated over $100,000 to assist their local community. They run an independent, family owned business, which aims to provide positive experiences for customers. They have a commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices, which includes manufacturing and selling superior and individualistic wines at fair prices, providing a supportive family atmosphere for their employees and taking responsibility for the impact of their business on the environment. "We aim to make quality wines with minimal environmental intrusion or impact. We are professionals, both with agricultural degrees and education in France where wine is still coveted and perceived as the expression of individuals." - Andrew Hickinbotham
They grow their grapes using organic principles which involve natural soil-enrichment (composted winery waste) and pest-control methods. Their wines are always low in preservatives. They have a registered Land for Wildlife property and a habitat for many species of native birds and animals like quolls, sugar gliders and bandicoots.They aim to have minimal impact on the environment through their wine making practices and re-use and recycle over 90 per cent of waste from their business. So next time you are topping up at your local supermarket think about how they support you.
Why not help us support each other!
