Iconic New Zealand winery, Villa Maria is launching its first organic wine range to meet the rising global demand for sustainable produce, as part of its commitment to converting 100 per cent of its company vineyards to be organically managed by 2030.
Called EarthGarden, it is a range of premium organic wines that are bursting with flavour, and available this month. 100% BioGro certified, EarthGarden triumphs Villa Maria’s strong sustainability credentials and continued commitment to organic winegrowing and gives consumers a range of wines from a trusted brand that reflects their lifestyle and ethical consumption choices. The range includes Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2020, Marlborough Pinot Noir 2019 and Hawke’s Bay Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2019.
Villa Maria Head of Marketing and Communications Sarah Szegota says, “Villa Maria wines are made for the moment and these wines perfectly capture a moment in time, whether it be cool nights, long hot days, or the warm Pacific breeze of the growing season. The essence and purity of the New Zealand landscape has been bottled in the EarthGarden range, and we can’t wait to share these wines with the world.”
Villa Maria Viticulturist Hannah Ternent adds that, “EarthGarden embodies our holistic view of sustainability where organic management means healthy soils and vineyard ecosystems, creating healthy vines and wines full of life and flavour, just as nature intended. When you taste the EarthGarden wines, you taste the care put into the soil, the conscious tending of the vines, the careful handling of the fruit produced and the respect for our relationship with the land.”
“Each year we plant wildflower seeds in the vineyards, which create beautiful, vibrant rows full of flowers, bees and insects that encourage a flourishing ecosystem, and we are highly motivated to further enhance the health of our soils and environment so we can continue to reap the rewards of beautiful fruit for years to come. EarthGarden perfectly encapsulates these principles and what we are striving to achieve.”
