Martins Hill Wines is a NASAA certified organic vineyard, Organic Vigneron and owner Michael Sweeney planted the first vines in 1985, more vines were added to the vineyard in 2000 and in 2015 a block of Riesling was planted. 2016 will see a planting of more Pinot Noir and already the work has commenced on this block. Michael is a passionate winemaker who lives the organic lifestyle, and produces preservative free and vegan friendly wines.
Over 30 years of organic practices and not using chemicals, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers has resulted in the production of a beautiful clean fruit.
Martins Hill is a small vineyard, all vines are hand worked by Michael and his partner Louise at harvest each year 15 to 20 local pickers harvest the crop.
The organic practice includes the integration of fine wool Merino sheep in the vineyard for 12 months of the year. This controls weed and grass growth and the natural input of manure is fertilizer.
