Sustainability at Justerini & Brooks


Because great wine needn’t cost the earth.

Drinking great wine and spirits shouldn’t cost the Earth. As Britain's oldest continuous fine wine & spirits merchant, we believe it’s our duty to minimise our carbon footprint in whatever way we can, from vine to table.

It is our responsibility to find better solutions, whether that’s working with our winemakers to minimise their packaging or championing biodiversity. As a basic rule, our buyers only work with producers who make wines that are both ethical and environmentally responsible. We are proud to represent beacons of sustainable winemaking such as Felton Road in New Zealand, Frog’s Leap in Napa Valley and Château de Meursault – soon to be the largest certified organic estate in the Côte d’Or.

We are also proud supporters of charitable organisations such as Tusk Trust, whose valuable work in preventing habitat loss and supporting wildlife conservation through habitat restoration and reforestation is invaluable.

Sustainability at Justerini & Brooks

Buying Director, Giles Burke-Gaffney visits some of our growers in Burgundy and takes us through some of their sustainable methods of wine production and why we are supporting them.

We champion producers who make wines ethically and sustainably and we feel it is only right that we work in equally environmentally-conscious ways. We have a sustainability programme manager whose sole responsibility is to co-ordinate and evolve this agenda.

Felton Road

Felton Road works in tandem with nature using organic treatments, manure and plant cover crops to ensure natural bio-diversity in the vineyards. Low yields are achieved through hand pruning and all picking takes place by hand. The result is pure, light touch, vibrant wines.

Frog's Leap

Frog's Leap's founder John Williams was a pioneer in so many ways, a full decade ahead of the curve when it came to organics and regenerative agriculture, a passionate believer in dry farming, and a great advocate for social equity for his vineyard workers.

Château de Meursault

A wonderful, historic Domaine that has the Côte de Beaune’s most impressive vaulted cellars. Along with sister estate, Château de Marsannay, this will soon be one of the biggest certified organic estates in the Côte d'Or. A new star of Burgundy is born.
