Eden Hall have gone off grid for long term sustainability
Eden Hall vineyard owners, David and Mardi Hall, work in harmony with the environment through a series of different practices and programmes, lead by General Manager, Graeme Thredgold (who also sources grapes for his Stage Door Wines from this vineyard), and Viticulturalist, Dan Faulkenberg. By installing over 60 solar panels and an extensive investment in a back up battery generation system and water tanks, the business is now operating completely off grid. The vineyard has taken the initiative to be on the front foot of long-term sustainable production by participating in a third-party audit of their Sustainable Winegrowing Australia (SWA), and having successfully passed, and is now considered one of the Barossa’s top three most sustainably run vineyards (in company with Thorn-Clarke and Henschke), as detailed in a case study by Barossa Grape and Wine/Sustainable Australia Winegrowing Barossa. The vineyard has been named an ‘Environmental Champion of the Barossa Valley’ by the Government of South Australia’s ‘Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board’. Eden Hall’s specific practices include: revegetating creek lines; improving water quality and fighting salinity; using less water by utilising soil moisture monitoring and building soil health by applying straw mulch undervine and making their own compost on site; using a Low Flow Bypass system on their water dam that allows for environmental flows; established native perennial grasses in the vineyard mid-rows to enhance biodiversity and provide habitat for beneficial predatory insects; utilising sheep on a rotational grazing system in the vineyard during winter and early spring to reduce tractor hours and passes which cause soil compaction (which also saves on the use of diesel, reducing overall emissions).
