Sustainability in Practice

In the vineyard, we strive to protect the resources valuable to our farms and communities. We are the Central Coast Vineyard Team, a network of 300 local farmers, working on resource conservation for 15 years. We’re highlighting the growers who have taken this commitment one step further by investing in sustainable vineyard certification.

We have a rich history of award-winning recognition and we’re confident that this certification chapter will strengthen our place as industry innovators.

As a consumer you can put Sustainability in Practice by supporting farmers who grow great wines and a healthy environment. So you can do your part, by supporting our work, all while enjoying great wines. The SIP Certified Seal assures that the farmer has completed a process verifying the way the fruit was grown and confirms that the wine was made with SIP certified fruit.

Even though ’08 wines made with certified fruit won’t be available until ’09, you can support these farmers and wineries who were hand picked for the pilot because of their long-term commitment to the Vineyard Team’s work. So raise a glass and SIP the Good Life.
