Sustainability and a concern for the environment are high priorities for everyone at Sidewood Estate. Their livelihood depends on preserving their environment and keeping the soil quality at its highest. Adapting to changes in climate and future-proofing the land are all part of Sidewood’s agenda.

Sidewood has implemented many sustainable and environmentally friendly practices across its business. As a result Sidewood Estate is now the largest fully Entwine Accredited sustainable winery in the Adelaide Hills.

14:00 Proceed to Saint & Scholar winery for wine tasting

The Saint & Scholar vineyard makes for a beautiful, spectacular backdrop for our wine makers. It is north facing and particularly hilly. The hilly terrain means in an area of high rainfall, like the Adelaide Hills, water drains rather well. Together with the beautiful sunlight and naturally cool climate, this makes for a perfect, harmonious environment to ripen quality, consistent vines; soon to be quality, consistent wines.
