environmental care, ecological, sustainable
Paracombe is a beautiful part of the world. The air is fresh and clean, the scenery is diverse and beautiful, a natural tapestry changing with every season.
At Paracombe we have a real appreciation of the environment and the importance of working in harmony with nature. We have taken steps to minimise our impact on the environment and be efficient with resources like water and energy use in both viticulture and winemaking through water recycling programs and solar energy.
All of our vines are pruned by hand, deliberately keeping yields low to ensure optimum grape quality. Grass is slashed and dispersed directly under vines to produce mulch for water retention, promoting worm activity and healthy soils. Resident kangaroos live happily in the Drogemuller vineyards at Paracombe.
Our office and function facility was built using Eco Wall Panels, a product made from concrete covered, reconstituted polystyrene materials. This product is highly energy efficient and fire retardant.
Our vision is always to seek new and innovative ways to contribute towards a cleaner and greener environment ensuring a better future for us all.
