Sustainability – A Legacy

March 16, 2015

Celebrating 20 years as an organization dedicated to sustainable winegrowing, the Vineyard Team recently honored its founders with the inaugural Legacy Award at this year’s 10th Annual Sustainable Ag Expo. What began as a group of innovative farmers wanting to challenge and improve their own farming decisions, evolved to a nationally recognized organization with several progressive projects: Sustainability in Practice (SIP)™ Certification, Sustainable Ag Expo, Earth Day Food and Wine Weekend, and various research and education programs.

Since inception, with a myriad of programs that advance the industry’s commitment to forward thinking farming practices, the organization has been a leader of resource protection for vineyards and wineries by addressing the three pillars of sustainability – social, environmental and economic responsibility.
