Caring for the environment
10 Sep 2018
A brochure detailing Sevenhill Cellar’s long-standing commitment to environmental protection is now available at cellar door and online here.
An initiative of Sevenhill Cellars and the Australian Jesuits, it outlines the many planet-friendly practices followed in the winery and vineyards, ranging from recycling and renewable energy to water harvesting and biological farming techniques.
The brochure, printed on recycled stock and also available in digital form, reflects the wider environmental concerns of the Jesuit community and the Catholic Church through Pope Francis, who underlined his concern for Mother Earth in his landmark 2015 Encyclical letter, Laudato si’: on care for our Common Home. He wrote, “Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or secondary aspect of our Christian experience.”
