I’ve just come back from the “Green Wine Summit” in Santa Rosa CA and did I ever learn a lot. It was a wonderful opportunity to see so many people from all aspects of the wine industry coming together to learn and to teach about the advancements in sustainable, organic and bio dynamic wine making. We learned about the publics view of sustainable and organic wines as well as their concerns about “green washing”. There were seminars about local and nationwide programs for lowering CO2 emissions and becoming carbon neutral. I am very honored to be part of this growing movement to improve land use and bring a more natural and sustainable product to the world of wine.
