Bran­cott Es­tate

The Bran­cott Es­tate Liv­ing Land Se­ries of wines is the flag­ship for Bran­cott Es­tate’s com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity. Not only does con­ser­va­tion fea­ture at ev­ery stage of the pro­duc­tion process, but $1.00 from ev­ery bot­tle sold from the Se­ries in New Zealand goes to the Liv­ing Land Fund to help re­store and rein­tro­duce the na­tive New Zealand Fal­con in Marl­bor­ough. Bran­cott Es­tate has been an ac­tive sup­porter of the Marl­bor­ough Fal­con Con­ser­va­tion Trust for the past two years. The funds have also helped build a state-of-theart Bran­cott Es­tate Aviary within one of Bran­cott Es­tate’s vine­yards. Pa­trick Mater­man, chief wine­maker for Bran­cott Es­tate com­ments: “Work­ing in har­mony with na­ture not only en­sures the sus­tain­abil­ity of our wine­mak­ing, but of the land it­self and the life upon it.” To­day Bran­cott Es­tate’s fo­cus on sus­tain­abil­ity ex­tends well be­yond its own foot­print. Bran­cott Es­tate’s en­vi­ron­men­tal work starts in the vine­yard. They were a found­ing mem­ber of New Zealand’s orig­i­nal sus­tain­able wine­grow­ing ini­tia­tive and all of their vine­yards are ac­cred­ited un­der New Zealand’s Sus­tain­able Wine­grow­ing scheme. All Bran­cott Es­tate sites are cer­ti­fied to the ISO 14001 in­ter­na­tional en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dard.
