Drink wine, do good: this new sustainably produced, veganfriendly wine is worth adding to your cart.
Grounded in the belief that sustainability is a 'must have', not a 'nice to have', Australian family wine maker, De Bortoli Wines has this month launched a range of three sustainably produced wines under the new label, 17 TREES.
With a rich history in both wine production and eco-friendly innovations, De Bortoli has created another sustainably produced wine range, 17 TREES. Accompanied by a collaborative commitment to plant one tree for every six bottles sold, wine aficionados and casual enthusiasts alike can sit back and enjoy these top drops guilt-free knowing they're supporting important tree regeneration projects. Oh, and did we mention it's vegan? All these little things add up to make De Bortoli's 17 TREES the new go-to for the socially and environmentally conscious, allowing more Australians to now enjoy the delicious taste of these wines.
Building upon De Bortoli's first sustainability project in 2008 - to plant 17 trees for each company vehicle to offset the carbon effects of its fleet – the 17 TREES range which includes a Shiraz, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay (export only), demonstrate it is possible to do good whilst not compromising on taste.
The 17 TREES launch has seen De Bortoli partner with not-for-profit organisation Trillion Trees to plant native trees for a sustainable future. In a hope to rebuild the Australian bushland lost during the 2019-2020 bushfire season, every 6 bottles of 17 TREES sold will go towards planting 1 tree in Australia. Wine lovers can take comfort in the knowledge that pouring a glass of 17 TREES will contribute to a shared commitment to work towards a greener Australia.
Sustainability is at the core of the De Bortoli family's drive for innovation, with the company widely recognised for their quest to become a Zero Waste Wine Company through wise water management, energy efficiencies and improved waste management over the past 15 years, in addition to converting some vineyards to organic. With a vision of a future where great wine and a healthy environment can be enjoyed by everyone, 17 TREES range is packaged in lightweight recycled glass bottles, with labels produced from natural fibre-based pulp derived from sugar cane waste, and recycled packaging materials.
De Bortoli encourages all Australians to do good and drink well, with every purchase of 17 TREES an opportunity to contribute to the collective
efforts of a network of likeminded winemakers, suppliers, distributors and retailers to guarantee the health and vitality of Australia's bushland for generations to come.
