New Howard Park wine range aims to aid the environment

With sustainability all the rage - and Earth Day being celebrated today - Howard Park Wines has released a new exclusive collection; Arbor Novae, and a partnership with environmental charity Carbon Positive Australia. 

The new range is available from today, initially exclusively to the West Australian winery’s Wine Club members.

The Arbor Novae range is designed to showcase terroir through regional characters in the glass, but also through active reinvestment back into the land.

For every bottle of Arbor Novae sold, $1.50 will be donated to Carbon Positive Australia. This initiative will help support local tree planting and landscape restoration for a carbon positive future.

Founded in Western Australia, Carbon Positive has restored degraded lands Australia-wide through ecologically sensitive planting for over 20 years. Through its work, the charity has planted six million trees and captured 665,921 tonnes of carbon.

“This is about legacy and integrity -  the Burch family is determined to leave the land they source from in a better state, a more sustainable state, for future generations,” says Howard Park chief viticulturist David Botting.

“The partnership with Carbon Positive allows us to extend our legacy beyond the fences of our vineyard and in doing so, helps secure a more sustainable future for all. Arbor Novae represents one new pillar of our sustainability ethos here at Howard Park and allows wine club members to enjoy unique and carefully crafted wines that reflect varietal diversity and vineyard character, whilst directly contributing to restoring our natural landscapes.”

The name Arbor Novae means “new trees” in Latin and the Arbor Novae labels display original paintings by Fremantle artist Andy Quilty featuring abstract tree forms. 

The range features a 2019 Margaret River Chardonnay (RRP $35), 2020 Pinot Gris (RRP $30) from the Mount Barrow vineyard in Mount Barker, a 2020 regional grenache shiraz blend (RRP $30) and a2021 Old Vine Riesling (RRP $30) from the Gibraltar Rock vineyard in Porongurup.
