Taylors has been providing valuable in-kind support to state and national Landcare Conferences and Awards and other Landcare events since 2009.
As a family owned wine company operating in both rural and urban settings, the Taylors family winery is committed to ensuring it operates in a responsible and sustainable manner. Taylors is blending generations of wine growing with farm practices that cut down its environmental impact.
In 2009, Taylors received the internationally recognised ISO 14001 Environmental Management System accreditation, which identifies the environmental impacts of operations across the business.
Taylors completed a rigorous independent audit of the carbon footprint of its Eighty Acres range of wines that resulted in the entire range of the Eighty Acres brand declared as 100% carbon neutral based on a full Life Cycle Assessment compliant to ISO 14044 – the first wine range in the world.
Taylors has also won significant environmental awards and currently undertakes several significant environmental initiatives which include an organisation-wide Eco-mapping system, recycling of waste water for vine irrigation, usage of straw to maintain soil moisture, rehabilitation of the local Wakefield River and introduction of sheep to control the weeds around the vines and mow grass.
