The entire vineyard is on ancient Cambrian soil. We have a 100 megalitre water entitlement from the Goulburn River (Waranga Channel) and our own pipeline to ensure water security. On average we use less than 1 megalitre of water per hectare. The oldest part of the vineyard is usually un-irrigated due to the depth of the top soil and age of the vines.
