Sustainability

As longtime stewards of the land, we are committed to better understand and nurture the land we farm. We are driven to help protect the ecosystems that sustain our businesses and ensure we operate responsibly with respect for the environment. Not only does this result in producing the best quality wine possible, it is the right thing to do for our company and our community.

We are proud to be LIVE and Salmon-Safe certified. These might sound like fancy certifications, but in reality, what they acknowledge is both simple, yet impactful.

LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) is a non-profit organization which promotes the use of sustainable, environmentally safe, economically feasible and socially acceptable control methods. For more information on LIVE visit liveinc.org.

The Salmon-Safe label on a bottle of wine means the grapes used in that wine were grown using healthy practices that keep Pacific Northwest rivers clean enough for native salmon to spawn and thrive. For more information on Salmon-Safe visit salmonsafe.org.

Over 40 years of innovation includes research dedicated to water and pest management, planting systems, mechanization, trellising and training systems, cover crops, pruning and cold hardiness. The research trials have taken place on our own or our growers’ estates and, often, in cooperation with Washington State University.
