Conservation

Vondeling recognised for their contribution to environmentally sustainable farming in the 2014 Nedbank Green Wine Awards. The South African wine industry has led the way in embracing farming in a more sustainable eco-friendly way. The Nedbank Green Wine Awards honour producers who go the distance to reduce the impact of farming on their land and operate in a more sustainable manner.
Vondeling Wines incorporating Bowwood vineyards, in the Voor-Paardeberg ward of Paarl, has just been awarded BWI Championship status, after several years of conservation and financial investment. The farm compromises 330ha of land, of which approximately 200ha is allocated for conservation. This area includes Boland Granite Fynbos, a vegetation type categorized as vulnerable according to the latest national list of threatened ecosystems. The conservation area was the subject of an intensive post fire evaluation which resulted in over 1000 fynbos species…
The aim of this venture is to raise funds to support WESSA's continuing conservation and environmental education work. Wine‐lovers will now have the opportunity to return nature's generosity and become partners with WESSA in caring too. Profits from sales of the wines will go directly to the organisation and help WESSA to work for the continued conservation of our natural heritage and a sustainable lifestyle on a healthy planet.

The leopard alerted us to his presence over two years ago, with paw-prints and faecal scat, demonstrating a diet including bones and porcupine quills!
