Nature conservation, glass of wine in hand



In the Cape winelands, vines are often grown in ecologically diverse areas rich in rare fauna and flora.  To lessen their impact on the region, especially fynbos, more than 167 winemakers in the region have committed to the WWF’s Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI). Twenty wine estates are considered ‘champions’ because they have committed more than 10% of their land to conservation. 

In addition to conserving land, many estates are also involved in a wide array of conservation projects. From Neethlingshof’s Owl Post Pinotage (the estate uses owl posts to naturally combat rodent problems) to Cape Point Vineyards’ Splattered Toad wine, which helps save the Western Leopard Toad, you can be ecologically responsible while enjoying a glass of your favourite wine. 

Leopard’s Leap’s relationship with the Cape Leopard Trust is going from strength to strength in 2011, and we are excited to continue our relationship with this amazing NGO. The CLT are expanding their surveys into new regions this year, including Namaqualand. We will keep you posted with all the details, and hopefully many images of these endangered animals.
