Based in the Awatere Valley region of New Zealand and surrounded by coast, wetlands, and peninsulas, it’s easy to see why Yealands are so inspired by nature.

Since its inception in 2008, Yealands has consistently demonstrated leadership in its unwavering dedication to sustainability. This commitment is deeply ingrained in the company's ethos and operations. Notably, Yealands achieved Toitū certification from day 1 - the first winery in the world to have done so.

"If someone was asking me about the Toitū certification, I'd say get on board, get into it as soon as you possibly can, it does strengthen your business processes and systems. And of course, your measurement, which is absolutely key." - Michael Wentworth, Yealands GM for Sustainability and Strategic Projects.
