North & South magazine January 2019 edition
We’re excited to see our Bendigo Estate in Central Otago featured in an article in the latest North & South magazine (Jan 2019 edition).
Peregrine owners, the McLachlan family, have had a passion for this land since Lindsay and Jude first purchased a block from John Perriam in 1998. In the years that ensued they have transformed their patch of paradise, with a holistic approach that integrates crop and livestock farming to vineyard management.
All creatures great and small contribute to life at Bendigo. Cattle help with compost production used to feed the vines and enrich the soil with organic matter, a herd of Wiltshire sheep keep down undergrowth in the vineyard, and the goats make a fantastic contribution controlling scrub in less developed areas. Pigs, chickens and bees are tenderly cared for by Jude, with the chickens employed to take care of any grass grub on the estate.
Organic farming is fundamental to every aspect of Peregrine’s Bendigo Estate and the fruit from Bendigo is recognised as forming an integral contribution to the Peregrine range of wines.
