Grove Mill has worked on regenerating native forests to off-set the emissions made during production. By planting trees in the wildlife sanctuary in Cape Jackson, Marlborough the company will offset 312 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.
From a statement from the Chief Executive, Bob White, it would seem they have taken into account international shipping – one concern raised recently on getting wines from as far away as New Zealand – “by reducing and offsetting our emissions from production and international shipping, they will become the natural choice for people concerned about food miles and global warming”.
Part of their CarboNZero project involved a packaging redesign for the UK and USA that ensured containers bound for these markets will have 10-15% more bottles of wine in them.
