Unico was established in 2014 by Laura and Brendan Carter, with Unico Zelo, a winery committed to growing and producing wine from low-water use varieties with minimal intervention winemaking practices. Since then the company has also established Harvest Social Cantina, a growers co-operative created to support financially viable grape growing and Applewood Distillery - a distillery championing native Australian ingredients.

This sustainability tracker has been the collective effort of our team since 2014 when we moved to our current location in Gumeracha, into the old coldstore. The scope of this tracker is not purely environmental but also covers business practices of governance, community, employees and responsible drinking. Our greatest achievement to date has been becoming B-corporation certified. We have been honest in this tracker of where we aren't meeting our commitments to the environment, and where we will be focussing our efforts in the future and are open to any and all suggestions from the community. Sometimes we didn't get it right and traded one environmental issue (plastic) for another (carbon cost of transport) but we are laying it all out here so that you can learn from our mistakes.

We acknowledge that our production will always have an impact and our industry has a lot to be accountable for but we hope to lead the way and set an example for sustainable growing, winemaking and distilling in Australia. Our company ethos of From The Land We Belong To is our commitment to work within our landscape and leave our industry and land better than we found it.
