Surface Water Use
Geology, soil & climate combine to create Australia’s most unique growing conditions
Forty million years ago, with the forces of water and tectonic plate movement, Australia’s Murray River system was born. The third longest navigable river in the world. These events caused the inland flow of rich fertile sediment and soil layers. Now commonly referred to as the ‘Food Bowl of Australia’, it is Andrew Peace Wines’ main source of water and nutrients.
Nutritious sandy and clay earth provide Andrew Peace Wines with a soil type typical of Champagne and Burgundy, and ideal for both red and white wines.
More than 400km inland, the climate is semi-arid with hot summers and cold to mild winters. With a characteristics akin to a ‘continental climate’ not unlike Burgundy; and very unlike the typical maritime or Mediterranean climates of almost all other Australian wine regions.

Over the last 25 years we have planted more than 15,000 trees – some of which have formed corridors all the way from the river to the edge of our property.
OF WASTE WATER RE-USED
There are many ways that we have worked to achieve this, including using drip irrigation and water monitoring devices when cultivating our land.
OF SOLAR PANELS
Over the year we use around 3.170 megawatts of electricity and (approximately) 7.5% of this comes from our 200kw solar panel system. We have plans to install even more solar panels and are aiming to have 15% of our power come from this renewable source.
