Sonoma to Become First U.S. 100% Sustainable Wine Region

By February 28, 2014Top News

The Sonoma County Winegrape Commission, also known as Sonoma County Winegrowers (SCW), announced that Sonoma County is committed to becoming the nation’s first 100% sustainable wine region through a three-phased program to be completed within the next five years. SonomaCountyLogoWhile many of the region’s multigenerational wine growers and winemakers have been practicing sustainable farming techniques and winemaking practices for decades, this initiative demonstrates their “seriousness and commitment” to ensuring all vineyards and wineries across Sonoma County will be sustainable. Third-party verification and certification programs will be used, such as the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance’s Code of Sustainability.
