VinØ

VinØ (“VinZero”) is a program that has been developed to measure, improve and report on the management practices of Tasmanian wine grape growers across the island.

This program ensures that Tasmania’s hard-working grape growers are doing everything they can to produce very high-quality wine grapes, without negative impacts on the environment or local community. VinØ members understand the connection with the land and people and recognise that we are custodians with a responsibility to the future prosperity of Tasmania.

The VinØ program focuses on the following key areas of vineyard management:

  • The health of our soils, on which we rely for high quality wine grapes
  • Managing pest and disease pressures in an environmentally responsible manner
  • Biodiversity - using natural flora and fauna to support land and vineyard health
  • Water - measuring and minimising water use in vineyards
  • Waste - responsibly managing waste and recycling
  • People - looking after our valuable vineyard personnel, and the broader community

The VinØ program provides a framework on the world’s best possible practices across each of these critical areas. Tasmanian grape growers use this framework to monitor, measure, report, benchmark and constantly improve their practices.
