Kaimira Estate and Brightside wines are certified by AsureQuality (www.organiccertification.co.nz).  AsureQuality is internationally accredited by IFOAM – the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements. IFOAM represents the best in international organic standards.

We are independently audited every year to guarantee compliance with these standards.
