Organic wine starts in the vineyard.
By enhancing soil biodiversity and maintaining its fertility, the grapes can truly thrive. By keeping our estate free of harmful chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilisers, our land is not only better for the grapes today but also tomorrow. The only irrigation our grapes receive is what’s generously donated by the sky; we don’t use any artesian water on our vines here.
During processing, we only add natural yeast to our ferments and use the lowest possible amounts of preservatives and additives. See the Additive List below for the chemicals that we DO NOT use in our wine. Every wine is made with a truly organic approach and is fermented, matured, and bottled right here on our premises.
We love what we do and we’re confident you will taste the difference.
Vegan wines are generally unfined and unfiltered, with no animal additives and, if filtered, are filtered using only sterile, cellulose filters or cross-flow filters. Be sure to check with the producer about filtering techniques as several mass-produced wineries use sterile filters rather than animal products.
Some wineries use bentonite clay besides the use of isinglass and other animal products in order to fine protein from white wines. Biodynamic wines can be made in a vegan way when they are unfined, but since the farming process uses animal bones for special compost mixtures, it negates this.
If a wine is certified organic, it doesn’t guarantee it’s vegan. Please ask when visiting any cellar door or read the back label for information.
Harris Organic Wines are generally not available at retail stores, because our production is limited. Even though we send thousands of bottles to our interstate and oversea customers
we do not ahve a distributor in any states of Australia or other countries. All our mail order wines are shipped direct from the winery.
However, there are three specialist retailers in Perth and Geraldton, Western Australia who do stock some of our extenive list.
