Why choose a Conservation Champion wine farm?
When pouring that glass of wine, most people don’t realise that the land cleared to grow our food - and grapes - has the largest impact on the indigenous insects, plants and animals that used to live harmoniously in these landscapes.
Compounding this is that in South Africa over 80% of land is either privately owned or communal farmland. This means that cropland and natural vegetation compete for co-existence.
Conservation Champions are wine farms that WWF-SA acknowledges as environmental leaders for their commitment to conservation, responsible production practices, integrated environmental management systems, and spearheading innovations in water, energy efficiency and climate adaptation.
