Mission Estate Winery underwent a major expansion in 2007, doubling grape pressing capacity to 2000 tonnes. The new production facility has been designed to deliver maximum energy and water efficiencies – a vital element in our ongoing commitment to the environment.
This multi million dollar upgrade was a pre-requisite in terms of growth, and most importantly, was designed to maximise energy efficiency. The winery has had ISO14001 accreditation since 1998. This recognises our ongoing commitment to sustainable viticulture and wine-making practices.
Over the past ten years we have introduced advanced science and technology in the winery, and are now able to make some of New Zealand’s finest wines in the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly manner.
Mission Estate Winery is committed to sustainability through our environmental management and sustainable programs. Inputs and outputs are constantly measured, as well as the effects these have on the environment. Our environmental program is managed to guarantee sustainability from the vineyard and winery, through to the bottle.
