Jordan Winery Launches Pollinator Partnership

By April 22, 2021Top News

Jordan Vineyard & Winery announced a multiyear planting program to turn acres of nonnative grassland into preserved habitat for vital pollinators, including the at-risk Western monarch butterfly, native bees and other insects. In collaboration with Pollinator Partnership, the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems, Jordan is restoring habitat across four sites on its sustainably certified estate this year with plans to expand habitats over the next two to three years. The project at the 1,200-acre Jordan Estate, located on the fall migratory route of the Western monarchs, will result in the largest dedicated pollinator habitat of all Bee Friendly Farming-certified vineyards nationwide, according to Pollinator Partnership. More than 3,400 plants, comprising about 100 species, will be planted across four initial sites totaling eight acres in 2021. In addition to being a Certified California Sustainable vineyard and winery, Jordan is a member of the Sonoma and Bay Area Green Business programs, and all Jordan Estate and grower vineyards are certified Sonoma County Sustainable.
