Pause for reflection

Published on 22 Jan 2020

On the last day of 2019, it’s a time for reflection. Pause and savour the happy memories and personal achievements you made in 2019 before seeing in the New Year and a new decade!

A highlight of the year for us here at Stonewell has been the continued work on our property with native re-vegetation. Through our co-operative work with NRM Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board and Barossa Grape and Wine BGWA we are proud to be a leading example to other vineyard properties in the region. This winter we planted 1000 more plants which totals 4000 since 2014. The newest project we have become part of is the “Wildlife for Wine” program. This program incorporates important research into beneficial insects for grape growing and wildlife in the vineyard such as micro bats. We have also recently joined a small Seppeltsfield Road focus group, the aim will be working with our neighbours and local council to re-vegetate surrounding sites, the first being the Seppeltsfield Road/Stonewell Road Information bay area which will be planted up with native trees, shrubs and ground covers in winter next year. In this land, the driest continent on earth, which is ravaged by drought and bushfire, it’s important for us to do what we can to help the big picture of climate change. We encourage you to do what you can too, every little bit counts.

Best wishes as you embark on a new decade, may it be a happy and fulfilling one for you. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the Barossa and the beauty of the different seasons with you in 2020.
