Anna Clark of Reuters writes about the innovations that wineries are implementing as they seek sustainable practices for their product. From solar panels to a tributary restored by native vegetation, much is happening in the world of fine wine.
Michael Honig, who sits on the board of directors for The Wine Institute, is taking the Institute's Sustainable Winegrowing Program to the next level by establishing a certification to offer over 1,100 wineries and related businesses a roadmap for going green. The Sustainable Winegrowing Program helps wine producers establish eco-friendly practices from ground to glass by developing guidelines and training to promote alternative energy, ecosystem management, composting, recycling, water conservation, and corporate citizenship. Through this effort, Honig is helping elevate the prestige of the entire region in the global wine market.
