In this unique experience, you will enjoy an authentic taste of premium, biodynamic, cool-climate wines with one of the region’s leading winemakers, from Tractorless Vineyard. Plus, you'll get the thrill of travelling in an open-top military vehicle from 70s Vietnam (and all profit is donated to the orphans of Vietnam) witnessing the picturesque landscape while wildlife spotting.

Then explore the gardens of The Loch at Berrima where you’ll feast on earthly delights created by celebrated chef, small farmer and Southern Highlands food guru Brigid Kennedy. Here there are options to thrill, like taking the 70’s vintage bell helicopter restored and flown by local Qantas pilots and see the all the sites on high.

Towards a TRACTORLESS VINEYARD embraces a combination of old world knowledge and skills with new world techniques all guided by Biodynamic principles. The aim is to reduce our resource use by the integration of natural farming systems in our vineyards to provide a more long term sustainably balanced and diverse farming system that can continue to produce award winning wines.

The premium cool climate Southern Highlands is the closest wine region to Sydney, Australia’s largest population centre. While the Southern Highlands wineries have some of the lowest WINE MILES for any Sydney based wine enthusiast, Working together with the local community and other farmers in the Southern Highlands Jeff Aston is leading the regions charge into a more sustainable long term wine industry.

Embracing a combination of Biodynamic techniques coupled with the integration of animal systems in vineyards, we hope to take our wines and some of the regions other vineyards into another level of long term sustainability and increasing wine quality.

Some of the best known wine producers in France and throughout Europe have been long term, or have converted, to Biodynamic viticulture and winemaking techniques and methods to sustain grape quality in order to produce some the highest rated wines in the world We have found when most growers are given the opportunity, knowledge and skills to produce a crop in a more environmentally friendly way, they will embrace it with vigour.

Our new project TOWARDS A TRACTORLESS VINEYARD involves the integration of intensive cell grazing of sheep in the growing season to reduce the resource and time hungry vineyard tasks such as weed control and mid row management and at the same time produce 100% grass feed lamb
