A guide to sustainability heroes

Jancis Robinson, the London based wine commentator, is without question the globe's most highly regarded practitioner in this field at the moment.

When she called for entries in her now traditional annual writing competition, this year on the subject of “sustainability” in the world of wine production, Ed Verrill, a two-time vintage worker with us here at Crittenden Estate, quickly put up his hand as an independent observer to write the story of our sustainability journey. Ed, an ex London based hospitality worker, introduces himself below as a segue into his story.

An independent panel of qualified judges was assembled to assist Jancis and her team to rate the entries and decide which companies are making major contributions in their endeavours. The organisers were bowled over by the number of entries from pretty well every wine producing country in the world, including four from Australia. Of the 85 entries in the competition 18 were singled out by the judges for ‘special mention’, and guess what………….we are one of those companies, thanks in no small measure to Ed’s light hearted but factual dissertation, (see his closing sentence).

No we didn’t win the competition but just to be included in the top entries 18 is reward enough. See here to read Ed's entry.

“Beautiful spot for wine tasting - and lovely wines. We had an excellent time with Ben who taught us a lot about their wines and made the experience fun. Great value getting the premium wine tasting selection.”
