Tread Softly is a contemporary range of wines seeking to deliver delicious, intensely flavoured wines that are naturally medium weighted and moderate in alcohol. By using more sustainable vineyard management and wine-making techniques to ensure their production has had a minimal impact to the environment. Tread Softly is committed to reducing their carbon footprint and so commits to planting an Australian Native Tree for 6 bottles sold.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards of the rich soils of the border of Victoria and South
Australia. The vines are mostly dry-grown and utilise expert canopy management to help to control
ripening and vigour.
Winemaking: Harvested in the cool of the morning to avoid the warmer temperatures of the day.
The fruit is quickly delivered to the winery for destemming and crushing prior to a regular
fermentation in stainless steel tank. A secondary tank ferment ensues to create and capture the CO2
and then a short period of storage before bottling for an early release.
This wine plants trees!
In order to give something back to the environment, we decided to plant an Australian native tree for every dozen boĴles of Tread Softly sold. Now that we have planted close to 200,000 trees in conjunction with Carbon Neutral, our next goal is to plant 250,000 trees to help address the urgent need for an extensive, long-term regeneration program.
