Our holistic management approach to grapegrowing preserves the diversity of our natural surroundings without compromising the quality of fruit. Through the use of remote vineyard monitoring stations, we can target chemical applications; utilize drip irrigation to conserve water and operate fewer vehicles in the vineyard. We also use organic fertilizers and nutrients, which are supplemented by our composting program.
This commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship has led to several significant achievements:
- Overall waste has been reduced by more than 50 percent.
- Old Vines Restaurant has been certified as Green Table and is a partner in the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise Program.
- We’re committed to using eco-glass bottles in our winery, which are light-weight and contain a higher percentage of recycled content.
Quails’ Gate has also partnered with Nature Conservancy of Canada in the development and protection of important ecological sites throughout the Okanagan Valley. For more information about our sustainability and environmental stewardship practices, please contact (Marketing & Communications).
