Yealands Family Wines aims to leave the land better than they found it. Yealands was established in 2008 with the vision to create the world’s first vineyard and winery that is sustainable at every level. Combining the very latest cutting-edge green technology and highly innovative thinking, the Yealands name quickly became synonymous with a passion for crafting ultra-premium wines in the most environmentally-friendly manner. Yealands Family Wines is the first winery in the world to be carboNZeroCertTM since inception. The winery and vineyard are also accredited under Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. Yealands’ commitment to their sustainability platform has garnered them over 1,600 awards and 29 trophies, including the 2017 Platinum Medal for International Award of Excellence in Sustainable Winegrowing at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT), the 2016 Environmental Commitment Elsie Award by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, and Renewable Energy Implementation Award Runner-Up at The Drinks Business Green Awards 2016 for the installation of the largest solar array in New Zealand on the Yealands Estate winery roof.
