The vineyards of uniWines are our lifeline in producing outstanding wines. Vineyards are planted site-specific to ensure we produce the highest quality grapes. We see ourselves as one big wine estate within the barriers of 2000ha of vines, all uniquely planted on a diverse grouping of soil types , within different micro climates.
The vineyards are planted in late winter every year. The young vines are trellis in the first three years of planting. Full production is achieved in year four of planting. Our irrigation consists of micro and drip irrigation systems that are only used when it’s vital. A continuous logging system is used to monitor the water usage of the vines. Water is supplied to the vines on a supplementary basis when they need it.
