In an industry first, O'Neill will initiate a living case study at Robert Hall Winery for the wider wine community to learn about regenerative viticulture through biodynamic farming techniques, comparing the results with our sustainably-farmed vineyards. The trial will be led by world-renowned biodynamic consultant Philippe Armenier and Robert Hall Winery Managing Director, Caine Thompson.
The purpose of the study is to understand regenerative farming practices and their effect on the vineyards’ ability to sequester carbon and overall quality effects on soil, fruit, and wine.
As stewards of our land, we have a desire to constantly improve our soils, fruit, and wine while minimizing our environmental impact and overall carbon footprint. Regenerative farming aids with this mission.
The regenerative viticulture comparative study is set across 40 acres of Robert Hall estate vineyards and will compare all aspects of growing under regenerative viticulture v. sustainable winegrowing techniques.
