A firm commitment to nature.

We respect the land

Sustainability is one of our core values at the winery. We work the land with the utmost respect, employing only organic fertilisers and natural pest control techniques and products. Our vineyards are organic, and we have started introducing regenerative techniques to improve soil health.

At Jean Leon, we are committed to our land and respecting its ecosystem. For this reason, in recent years, our strategic plans have included a commitment to take all possible actions to help preserve the environment.

These actions fall under five objectives:

1. Reducing our Carbon Footprint

One of the winery's objectives is to reduce its carbon footprint to help minimise the effects of global warming.
