Bouchard Finlayson is proud to be a WWF-SA Conservation Champion. Conservation Champion wine farms pursue long-term conservation commitments and spearhead innovations in water and energy sufficiency. The Estate has recently moved to use lighter weight bottles saving 6,4 tons of glass per annum. Our packaging and wine labels are FSC certified dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests.
In the early 2000s there was a rapid expansion of vineyards into highly threatened conservation-worthy habitats. In response - from 2005 - 2015 - a unique conservation sector, landowner and wine industry partnership achieved turnaround results. It was called the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative. It created the widespread awareness of our unique natural heritage, and many farms now carry out biodiversity-friendly farming. The SA wine industry has been globally recognised as demonstrating this fine balance between nature and farming.
