Banrock Station, Australia’s most loved eco wine brand, brings the pleasure of fine wine and the message of conservation to the world. Since 1995, Banrock Station has joined forces with environmental organisations, re-investing proceeds from the sale of Banrock Station wines to support conservation projects around the world. To date, the total contribution has exceeded HK$43 million to more than 130 projects globally. Let's us bring you a little introduces of a Fresh New Look of Benrock Station.
In Asia, Banrock Station has adopted 4 Orang-Utans in Malaysia for one year, and supported the Asian Elephant Foundation’s works in Sabah, Malaysia and Kanchanaburi, Thailand. In Hong Kong, Banrock Station has supported the restoration of Mai Po Wetlands. Funding was specifically donated to support the enhancement works of Gei Wai #11 – a shrimp pond at Mai Po Nature Reserve in 2013.
On August 7, we were invited for wine paring lunch with Mr. Paul Burnett, the winemaker of Banrock from Australia. Paul Burnett brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Banrock Station. Paul has a background specializing in producing quality red and fortified wines. He completed his Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology) from the University of Adelaide.
The wine pairing luncheon was held at Ta Pantry. Please stay tuned with us for more details about the wine paring luncheon!
Back to the story, in Australia, the brand is funding critical research to help protect Australia’s iconic and World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef and the marine life that call it home.
Grant Viney, General Manager Sales – Asia, said “The key to Banrock’s philosophy is helping consumers make a genuine contribution to projects that further their objectives in tackling global environmental issues such as climate change, water conservation, ecosystem loss and species loss. We take great pride in our environmental contribution and are proud to be helping consumers make a genuine contribution to global conservation”
Banrock Station’s environmental management began at home in its South Australian vineyards and extended to the restoration of the surrounding wetlands and woodlands. In 1994, a 250-hectare vineyard was established at Banrock Station, which has attained the Environmental Management Standard ISO-14001. Additionally, more that 1,000 hectares of wetland surrounding the vineyards was restored, leading to the listing of Banrock Station as a wetland of international importance by the International Ramsar Convention.
Chief Winemaker of Banrock Station, Paul Burnett, says “We have selected grape varieties from around the world, which produce excellent fruit in the South Australian climate. Our wines typify everything that is uniquely Australian – they are bold, generous and full of character. Our range of wines embraces well-loved traditional styles and innovations for today’s adventurous palates.”
Banrock Station wines are available at ParkNShop Hong Kong.
