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

Loved the little sample bottles and the review card with sheep as the rating stars, tried some wine that would normally be outside my comfort/price zone and had a lot of fun!

I never received the wine or any communications from the teacher about where the wine was. And the communication from ClassBento was extremely slow. While they did call to try and resolve the issue, I am still waiting on answers well over a month since ordering. Would not recommend.

Many thanks again for a great workshop.
