Conservation Levy:

Jordan Wine Estate is part of the Cape Floral Region – the smallest of the six recognised floral kingdoms of the world and a protected area inscribed on the World Heritage List. Habitat loss, land degradation, and invasive alien plant species contribute to the rapid rate of extinction of this sensitive biome. Integrating community infrastructure into this living system, requires time, research, and development to ensure the landscape is not only sustained but also regenerated simultaneously.

Our conservation levy is used to address conservation issues within our immediate environment, the Stellenbosch Kloof.

Working alongside the Integrated Production of Wine Scheme and the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy becomes a responsibility that needs to be shared by everyone who visits the area.

The 2% Conservation Levy on your final bill contributes to this shared responsibility and helps sustain critical biodiversity management practices, thank you.
