Our Commitment to Sustainability
“Environmental stewardship has always been one of the pillars at Quails’ Gate. I feel personal responsibility to protect this land for future generations.” – Tony Stewart, Proprietor & CEO
The Stewart family has been farming in the Okanagan for over 100 years. With this history comes a sense of responsibility for stewarding the land and protecting its future. At Quails’ Gate, sustainability is a policy of continuous improvement and philosophy of doing more with less. We cultivate a culture of innovation throughout all of our business practices, operations and supply chain. This commitment has reduced our waste by nearly 50% since 2010.
- A composting program in the winery, restaurant and offices diverts over 150 pickup-truck loads of yard waste to our compost pile annually.
- In the Wine Shop we use biodegradable plastic bags and reusable cloth bags.
- Lighting in the offices and on the property is motion-activated, while supplemental outdoor lights and water features are on timers.
- In 2020 Quails’ Gate is undergoing certification through the Green Step Program.
We believe our dedication to environmental stewardship is reflected in the care that goes into every bottle. Enjoy a bottle of Quails’ Gate wine to taste our commitment to quality.
