At the entrance to Forrest stands a prominent stone wall built of the very stones that come from the surrounding area of the Wairau Valley.
Beyond the wall the drive way winds through our oldest Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, over the small stone bridge and into a beautiful park setting, with slots of shady trees, a duck pond, picnic tables and bean bags. Forrest practice what they preach. They don’t believe in using ‘sustainability’ as a buzzword to make them look better — they live and breathe it.
From the vineyards, to the processing plant, to the very bottles themselves, every aspect has been considered with sustainability and minimal environmental impact in mind. Wild flowers are used to reduce the use of insecticides, winery waste products are recycled as fertiliser and irrigation water and all cartons and bottles used on site are recycled.
