At Stonecroft, we are committed to organic practices in both the vineyards and the winery. Our vineyards and the winery are certified organic by AsureQuality and we have IFOAM accreditation.
This means we do not use herbicides or pesticides in the vineyards. We have invested in an under-vine weeder which helps to control weeds without the use of chemicals. We also use a mechanical disk which assists with weed control and in our Fernhill Vineyard we cultivate alternate rows. During the winter months, sheep are used to keep growth down in the vineyards. We also use compost and seaweed to improve the health of the soil and encourage beneficial insects by planting appropriate companion plants.
