Our family has a commitment to sustainability, in the vineyards, in the winery and beyond.
The California Rules for Sustainability distinguishes growers who follow strict guidelines in their farming practices. We adopted this program in 2009, the first year that the program was made available to growers outside of the Lodi region, starting with our estate vineyards. Then, starting with the 2017 vintage, we required all of our 91 growers to implement the California Rules for Sustainability standards, paying a bonus to farmers who grow and harvest grapes in an environmentally responsible way. In 2021, 96% of all the grapes crushed in our winery were certified green under the California Rules for Sustainability program.
We know that clean, abundant water is what keeps our land fertile and alive and we believe we have a responsibility to keep it that way for our kids and grandkids. With increasing water demand and potential for more drought years, we take pride in the implementation of our water reuse and recycling program. For tank cleaning and barrel washing, we use high-efficiency nozzles and a water recapture and recirculation system. This system means that the water once used to clean one tank or barrel – can now be used up to three more times, thus dramatically stretching those same drops of water out to more barrels and tanks. Once the water is used at least three times, it is then sent out of the winery and filtered to be used for on-site irrigation.
