Mooigezicht Estates farms in partnership with nature and acts as a custodian to the natural heritage that surrounds the vineyards. Our farms are situated within the beautiful Western Cape Fynbos Biome of South Africa, renowned for its unique elements of biodiversity and many of the plant varieties found here are endemic to the area. The pristine Fynbos habitat still supports a wide range of indigenous animals and birds.
The major threats to biodiversity and water conservation are issues of habitat destruction, alien invasive plants and climate change. Considering South Africa’s limited water resources, water is an increasingly precious resource and both healthy crop production and the health of our environment depend on the availability of clean water.
We have established a comprehensive sustainable farming practice policy which in place to minimise the impact of the production practices on the surrounding environment. This policy is in force and all production activities are undertaken subject to this strict code. The policy also protects the biodiversity of natural habitats and the ﬂora and fauna.
