Integrated Production of Wine

The South African seal for sustainable wine was introduced in 2010 and is the world’s first traceable guarantee of production integrity from the soil to the packaged product including ethical labour practices.

Integrated production of wine (IPW) was introduced as an initiative to protect the environment and natural resources to ensure sustainable profitability of grape and wine production. It is estimated that over 90% of South African wine farms are IPW compliant.
