Proud members of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative
Skaap Wines are proud members of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI), a pioneering partnership between the South African wine industry and the conservation sector. As members we are committed to minimising the loss of threatened natural habitat and preserving the Cape Floral Kingdom.
As part of our commitment we cleared a fifth of our land of alien vegetation (mainly gum and pine forest) to establish a conservation corridor. This corridor connects two areas of pristine Fynbos and acts as a migration corridor for endangered species.
We've also implemented environmental friendly farming methods and practices throughout the farm and at the guest lodge. Landscaping is done with only indigenous flora. Our hot water is provided by solar energy, we use water saving shower heads, our waste is separated and composted, our paper recycled and rain water is collected for the gardens. We believe strongly that we need to conserve for our future and accept this responsibility.
