Our vineyard supervisor, Chris, explains our organic and vegan practices
We have been an organic winery from inception and certified vegan vineyard and winery since 2021, although our vegan winemaking goes way back. Biocyclic Vegan is our certifier from soil to glass and our vegan wines from our Gaspereau winery have been turning heads and winning national and international awards for over a decade.
As our vineyard supervisor, Chris, notes in this superb video, vegan vineyards do not use animal manures and instead management nutrients with composted grape pomace left over at the end of every harvest. It nourishes our living soils with organic matter teeming with mycorrhizal fungi that sequesters carbon and does not pollute water systems like animal manures.
