The Venue – Turanga Creek Vineyard
Turanga Creek’s “Down to Earth” philosophy is about getting back to nature’s roots and creating a sustainable property. They practice a respectable agricultural production, maintaining the symbiotic relationship between ourselves and the natural surroundings. It is important in our lifetime for people to understand the effects of growing within these boundaries for recyclable resources. Consumption of products and goods made with the support of elements found in your everyday environment, free from harmful residual chemicals, are risk free in terms of any adverse effects as they come directly from “Mother Nature”. This is the reason why they farm organically and are certified with Biogro.
Turanga Creek Vineyard began as a landscaping idea. Wayne and Mandy Allen purchased the property 20 years ago when it was a rundown stud farm and decided to plant a small vineyard – just over 1/2 a hectare. It grew into what it is today – 8 hectares planted in a variety of vines from the Rhone Valley. This includes Pinot Gris, Viognier and Syrah.
After the first vintage in 2008 the decision was made to convert to organics after seeing how much chemical was used over one growing season and the effect it had on the soil. Thet have now been fully certified organic with Biogro since 2011 vintage.
