Angove is constantly looking to reduce power use, and consequently decrease green house gas emissions. The following changes have helped reduce their carbon footprint
Organic and Biodynamic Viticulture
Angove Family Winemakers began their journey in organic viticulture in 2009. Two hundred hectares of their Nanya Vineyard in the Riverland is certified organic as is their 10 hectare Warboys Vineyard, adjacent to the McLaren Vale Cellar Door.
All vineyards are watered using drip irrigation, with soil moisture probes used to inform irrigation decisions, resulting in an estimated 25% reduction in water consumption per hectare.
Rainwater is captured and stored for future use as process water within the winery, while winery waste water is treated and used as irrigation water in the 25 hectare woodlot, planted to regenerate a salt scolded flood plain.
Angove Family Winemakers is a member of the National Packaging Covenant and has a strong commitment to recycling packaging materials including glass, cardboard, paper and plastics with systems in place to ensure efficient handling and collection of all items for recycling. Light weight bottles that use 40% less glass and deliver a reduction of CO2 per bottle of more than 15% has been introduced in certain lines. All carboard boxes are made from sustainably sourced wood pulp and are 100% recyclable.
Angove produces various waste streams and aims to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible
The future at Angove is bright, with some incredible projects planned for 2024
