As such, we are pleased to announce that in early August, Vasse Felix was accepted into the Organic Certification program through NASAA (National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia). We are now well on our way to receiving the full certification for all four of our Margaret River vineyards, with full certification expected by 2021.
The decision to adopt organic viticulture supports our vision for the ongoing sustainability of our land. The key to this is the health of our soils, which we are constantly improving through natural processes. We’ve found that we achieve better plant health and balance with an organic approach, which ultimately leads to higher quality fruit.
Margaret River is an extraordinary place, and our vineyards are our ‘sacred sites’. Adopting organics for these sites doesn’t guarantee great wines, but it’s part of the package for us, and we believe you can taste it.
Over three-quarters of the Vasse Felix vineyards are now officially 'In Conversion.'
