We are very pleased to announce that from 1 May 2012 Yealands Estate , the New Zealand winery renowned for high sustainability across its production, will join the Enotria range. Yealands Estate, one of a handful of wineries around the world to be certified as carbon neutral, produces its range of Estate wines from its uniquely innovative, sustainable winery in the Awatere Valley, Marlborough.
Founded by dynamic environmental entrepreneur Peter Yealands, the winery was the first in the world to become an approved supplier to the UK's Sustainable Restaurant Association, and was runner up for the Sustainability Award at the Drinks Business Green Awards 2012.
Enotria buyer for New Zealand, Daniel Hart, says
"We welcome Yealands Estate to our already strong New Zealand line up. They complement our established premium, regionally representative Portfolio re-enforcing our credentials as a supplier of high quality wine from every part of the world.
“Yealand's arrival fits perfectly with our philosophy to develop our Portfolio to suit the ever changing marketplace, consumer demands and key sales channels that are in biggest growth. Crucially it also adds Carbon Neutral to the successful 'sustainable' element in our Portfolio alongside Organic, Bio-Dynamic and Fairtrade. The innovations in sustainability that Yealands Estate have brought about are an example to the whole wine world. These are great wines with a great story behind them. "
