Single Vineyard Wines crafted from fruit off the Australian Vineyard of the year!
Eden Hall Vineyard
Better for the planet,
Better for you!
We have a shared vision of sustainability, biodiversity, place and time, with attention to detail in everything we do. Wine is about a journey and we are striving to create wines that reflect the terroir, the season and the efforts of each year.
We are totally focused on regenerative farming practices to ensure the long-term health of the family vineyard and to leave it in a better place for the next generation to enjoy.
Whilst we acknowledge the challenge of climate change we are continually adapting and working with the environment, rather than against it. This is imperative since we have no imported water in the Eden Valley.

Onsite compost to improve soil
Reintroduction of native grasses
Mixed farming enterprise
Compost is made onsite from waste materials, providing an organic soil improver while closing the loop in waste management and eliminating the need for synthetic fertilizer to be applied. Compost extracts and teas are also brewed on site and then applied to improve plant growth by using beneficial organisms which help protect the vine and encourage micro-organisms in the soil ecosystem.
Straw mulch is applied under vine again decreasing the reliance and dependence on irrigation while improving soil biota and significantly diminishing the use of the herbicide. The straw provides many benefits by retaining soil moisture and decreasing soil temperatures during extreme heat events.
As a mixed farming enterprise we utilise sheep in the vineyard during the winter months limiting the reliance on tractors and diesel consumption.
The family commitment to the environment has been considerable with the revegetation and fencing of a creek line that flows into the Marne Saunders catchment. The planting of native insectary plants in the vineyard, in particular Wallaby grass (Rytidosperma spp), Christmas Bush (Bursaria Spinosa) and Prickly Tea Tree (Leptospermum Continentale), provide a habitat and food source for insects that prey on pests. The planting of thousands of native trees and shrubs endemic to the area around the vineyard has enhanced the aesthetics and provided habitat for various threatened native birds and microbat species.
Our practices are continually evolving to meet the environmental challenges.
Our journey continues!
