Sustainability - Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery



Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery is proud to be considered a "Sustainable Winemaking Ontario" winery as administered by the Wine Council of Ontario. Given the property has been in my family for 200 years should be evidence enough!


Management of the vineyards is a total concept ensuring all use of materials for pest and disease control is timely and most effective. Weed management ensures minimal use of herbicides with some years seeing none used at all.


Low water use, efficient and maximum use of existing resources and materials has ensured a minimal impact of the winery on the footprint of the estate. By customizing existing building, and structures within, has allowed for maximum recycling potential where possible.


As a conscientious purchaser of packaging supplies, new packages are currently under review considering their appeal to the consumer and environmental impact.
