Distinctive wines of New Zealand


Having sheep graze in the vineyard cuts down on energy intensive mowing, but has its pitfalls once the vines grow and the grapes emerge. Yealands Estate, a Marlborough based winery that’s renowned for environmentally sustainable initiatives, has come up with an all-season solution….

Our flock of Babydoll miniature sheep stand barely two feet tall. Too short to reach the fruit, these pint-sized organic weeders provide year round mowing and pest control, plus a handy dose of fertiliser.

Nurtured from the ground up with sustainable practises and produced in a carboNZero certified winery, the pure and intense flavours of Babydoll reflect the winery’s innovative thinking in tune with the environment.
