Thistle Hill's vineyard has been formally certified organic since 1993.
Connoisseurs often choose organic wines because they want authentic, full flavours and complexity.
Thistle Hill does not use pesticides or herbicides. These chemicals leach nutrients from the soil.
Our grapes grow naturally from the rich nutrients and minerals in our soil. The vines work harder and have deeper roots than non-organic vines. The end result is complex wines that are a great representation of our vineyard and the Central Ranges Wine Region.
Think about when you buy a tomato or any other produce at a farmers market. An organic tomato tastes much better than one purchased in a supermarket. Organic grapes are no different. They are full of flavor and create excellent wines just as nature intended and as humans have been doing since Roman times, before chemicals were invented.
