Our sustainable practices
We planted sub clover in between the vines, and at the end of rows. This helps prevent soil erosion, deliver nitrogen to the soil and suppresses weeds.
We also set aside areas for biological diversity.
Recycle crop waste
We use grape skin compost for our vineyard. Each year after Pruning, the cuttings are shredded back into the soil.
Minimal tilling. Every other year we till an alternating row in the vineyard.
Minimal synthetic inputs.
We recently invested in a new sprayer, on the target sprayer. This sprayer ensures minimal use of pesticides by only spraying on the target crop. We also use canopy management method which ensures Optimal light interception and optimal air movement, results prevent diseases.
At high Pass we understand a farm as an ecosystem, we let birds fly and insects be, as part of our flora which in turn act as natural pest eliminators. Wild animals are not unusual happenings in our vineyards either.
Our landscape and flower gardens are not the most manicured you have come across. Why? We let nature be. Why clean out what the soil needs to replenish?
