Earthgarde­n by Villa Maria, is its first organic wine range and forms part of its commitment to converting 100% of company vineyards to be organicall­y managed by 2030. 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 viticultur­ist Hannah Ternent said, “Earthgarde­n embodies our holistic view of sustainabi­lity where organic management means healthy soils and vineyard eco-systems, 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 eco-system, and we 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.”
