Rootstock invites you to our last event of 2009. We explore GREEN ISSUES in the winelands, viz Organic , Biodynamic , Bio-logic  and Carbon Neutral . Join us to hear from our panel of producers how they are applying their approaches, and what they are doing to make a difference to our environment. Participate in the panel discussion which will ensue. We encourage active debate from all present. We can all learn from their experiences, and invite you to ask questions, in fact if you would like to email questions to us before the event - we will pass them on to the speakers. Emails to Our panel consists of:

  • Michael Back from Backsberg on their Carbon Neutral work
  • Michelle du Preez from Bon Cap on their organic production
  • Johnathan Grieve from Avondale on their Bio-Logic approach
  • Johan Reyneke from Reyneke Wines on his Biodynamic approach.

If you would like to contribute to the discussion - feel free to participate after they have made their 10 minute presentations.

  • How do these approaches differ? How are they the same?
  • What impact are they making on their environment?
  • What impact are we making on the environment but not adopting similar approaches?
