BackgroundBased in the Awatere Valley, the southernmost, coolest and driest of Marlborough's wine growing regions, Yealands is one of only a handful of wineries around the world to be certified as carbon neutral and the first-ever to be certified from inception. The estate was founded on 08-08-08 by dynamic environmental entrepreneur and iconic figure Peter Yealands. 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. Comprising 133 vineyards blocks on 1,000 hectares (2,471 acres), Yealands sustainable Seaview estate is designed with biological diversity in mind. Alongside the vineyards, 25 wetlands and more than 175,000 types of native flora support an ever-increasing range of fauna. The winery's holistic approach to constantly-evolving sustainable vine growing practices has not only garnered global acclaim for beautifully crafted wines, but also admiration for their visionary tenacity. In 2014, Yealands was selected as the 2014 Green Company of the Year by The Drinks Business.
