Dog Point Chardonnay 2021


Dog Point Vineyard own & operate the largest organic Biogro certified vineyard in New Zealand. Dog Point began organic conversion of the vineyards in 2009. One of the initiatives carried out as part of the organic regime is the turning of vine pruning’s and winery waste into mulch to create a healthy organic compost for use on plantings throughout the property. Leachate from this process and apply it to the vineyards as fertiliser to help conserve moisture and improve the soil structure.

In spring, cover crops such as buckwheat and phacelia are planted between the vines to encourage beneficial insects for biological control of insect pests. Over the winter months, 2500 sheep and 25 steers are brought onto the property to control grass and weed growth and assist in adding organic matter to the soil.
