Grapes

Our VineYard

Crighton Estate is proud to be producing 100% Marlborough wine.

Unlike many large vineyards we have always worked to reduce chemical sprays long before sustainable grape growing was officially recognised.  Simple cutbacks such as reducing scheduled mowing and other aesthetically pleasing aspects of grape growing make a difference when considering the environmental impact of growing grapes.

This year Crighton Estate has been in row cropping.  This is the perfect approach to ensure the soils are rich with nutrients without using fertilisers.  By ensuring certain rows are inhabited with bee attracting wild flowers the vineyard can also promote good pollination together with helping our local bee population.

More environmentally conscious innovative ideas such as these will pave the way forward  for many Crighton grape growers to come.
