Nederburg Wines, just outside of Paarl, is one of South Africa’s most pedigreed names in wine. Dating back to 1791, the winery enjoys a long-standing reputation for excellence in South Africa and abroad.
The water stewardship process required initial investment in sophisticated water consumption measurement tools so that they could precisely calculate the water-saving impact. These include moving towards night irrigation, monitoring cover crops planted in and amongst the vineyards as well as measuring the use of drought-resistant rootstocks, water-stress deficit irrigation and pressure bombs which measure leaf water respiration. Plus they have introduced several climate-resilient Mediterranean grape varietals.
The Nederburg team has also worked diligently to improve the management of streams and drainage lines that run through the farm, while continuing with the rehabilitation of the land to indigenous vegetation. In the cellar, recycled water is used for the cooling tanks, with more efficient chilling processes applied. Water-wise cleaning regimes are rigorously followed to eliminate water wastage. Rain-water harvesting has been stepped up and filtered effluent water is diverted to irrigate the farm’s extensive gardens.
