Clinton’s green thumb comes from the experience of leading important environmental initiatives such as a partnership with Landcare to regenerate the local Wakefield River with native species. And as a third generation family member, he recognises that family trees mean more than just lineage.
So, at our Clare Valley estate he’s made sure that 100 native trees have been planted amongst the vineyards. “Trees are crucial to sustaining a healthy environment. They prevent soil erosion, manage water flow and provide shade and habitat for the local fauna. Biodiversity is also key to healthy ecosystems. We’re delighted that our vineyards are the happy home to a wide variety of beneficial insects including bees, hover flies, butterflies, spiders and other friendly bugs all of which play their part and allow our vineyards to flourish.”
