Too often, wine producers rely on harsh chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides to maintain their vineyards. But not all wineries are the same. The Releaf wines symbolizes the true meaning of sustainability and harmony within nature. With Releaf, our growers use sustainable agriculture to produce 100% hand harvested, organically grown grapes.
We all have the ability to change, to make greener decisions and to help the environment by using partially recycled glass for the bottle and labels that contain sustainable inks and recycled paper.
Pruning is essential to manage the vigor and control the harvest. If vines are pruned hard, leaving only two to three buds, it reduces the yield, but vastly promotes the quality of grapes. This technique of cutting is called "short wood". We take care to select our grapes produced from "short wood" for their outstanding quality, making wine to enhance your drinking pleasure.
Fat Barrel Wine Company was founded by entrepreneur Bob Lynde that works in partnership with Imbuko in both South Africa with the belief that the fine wine consumer is inherently interested in giving back to those with less.
As a result 10% of revenue made from the label is put back into selected community organizations to help those with less. The wines are truly more than just a bottle.
