We are only stewards of the land and, as such, we will apply sustainable best practices in the vineyard and the winery to reduce the impact of our footprint on the environment, our neighbours, and society as a whole. We will use environmentally sound practices and products wherever possible in the making and marketing of our wines and all the while protecting the resources and infrastructure of Hidden Bench.
