Purchase Sustainable Grapes
Purchasing sustainable grapes helps elevate your brand as market demand grows and conscious consumerism reigns supreme. Simply doing well for the environment isn’t enough anymore and sustainable businesses that provide equitable wages and support for their communities are becoming the preferred choice amongst consumers.
Gone are the days of “Award Winning” as a lure for consumers with sustainability taking the lead. According to a Wine Intelligence study, “90% of those surveyed are willing to pay more for sustainably produced wine. U.S. wine consumers on average say they are willing to pay as much as $3 more per bottle for a sustainably produced wine.”
Sustainable wines aim to have a winemaking process that protects the environment, supports social responsibility, maintains economic feasibility, and produces high-quality wines. A variety of environmental factors are prioritized as grapes are grown, harvested, and made into wine. Biodiversity in the vineyards ensures soil health and using integrated pest management is a safe, environmentally friendly way to mitigate pests. Using owl boxes or falconry is a method to control ground mammal worries. Water conservation is a large part of maintaining a sustainable vineyard and winery as well as using renewable energy sources like wind and solar for power needs.
Purchasing sustainable grapes is an incredible value add for all of the previously mentioned benefits. It also serves as a great tool for sales and consumer-facing content when you share your sustainability efforts and include the SIP Certified sustainability logo on your bottle.
