Enjoy a glass or two of wine; help save the planet

Tamburlaine Organic Wines has announced an innovative collaboration with gardening expert and environmentalist Jamie Durie to create a small batch of wines called True Earth Collective. 

The very limited releases are from organically certified vineyards, but also come with extra benefits.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Jamie and Planet Ark on a project that is so synergistic with our values,” said Mark Davidson, Tamburlaine’s chief winemaker (below).

“Tamburlaine has prioritised organic and regenerative farming practices across our vineyards for over two decades now. We’re staunch believers that it’s the way forward for winemaking and more broadly for agriculture in Australia.” 

For every bottle of True Earth purchased, consumers are donating $2 to Planet Ark’s National Tree Day, as well as receiving fractional shares in an Australian sustainability exchange traded fund (which sounds like a good thing). 

"I am passionate about the need to honour and heal our land,” said Durie. “This collaboration with Tamburlaine was born through the mutual respect for land and how it’s managed. We are tremendously excited to see this project from conception through to completion." 

Durie has been an ambassador for National Tree Day since 1999 and worked with Planet Ark on environmental initiatives for over 27 years. 

There are three wines in the collection: Wild Chardonnay, Malbec Shiraz and Cabernet Shiraz, each selected from organic vineyards across Orange and Canowindra in Central West New South Wales. 

True Earth Collective wines will be available for purchase exclusively online and through Tamburlaine cellar doors in the Hunter Valley and Millthorpe. All are priced at $30 with discounts for Tamburlaine club members.

  1. This is great. Some wineries just say things like, “we’re using cans” or we try to use less additives. Sounds like they’re putting their money where there mouth is and they’ve been aware for 25+ years.
