In our kitchen the words 'organic' and 'biodynamic' are not trendy calling cards. We work on the basis that our choices around food hold a key role in making the world a better place. And we love having a close relationship with our suppliers: they're often friends and an important part of our big family.
What's better than a gourmet dinner to celebrate one of our best partnerships?
Rosnay is an organic vineyard and orchard at Canowindra, in the Central Ranges of NSW. It was created by the Statham family in 1997, and produces certified organic wines, olives, and figs.
Certified organic since 1998, the vines and orchards have never been sprayed with harmful chemicals, a family commitment that began with Richard’s father Clive Statham. The family’s wine growing heritage begins on the other side of the family, with Florence Statham’s french grandfather, Alberic Dulong de Rosnay, after whom the farm is named.
The family’s commitment to organics culminated in the winning of the inaugural Organic Pioneers Award in 2012, through the NSW Department of Primary Industries. Its commitment to making good wine has led to the winning of the Greg Johnson Trophy for Best Local Red Wine at the Cowra National Wine Show, in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and the NASAA Winestate Organic Wine of the Year in 2016.
Visitors are welcome at any time by appointment for a tour and tasting, or to stay for a weekend in the original farm house converted for Farmstay accommodation.
