Washington Winegrowers Relaunching Sustainability Program
The Washington Winegrowers Association has announced that it will relaunch its “Vinewise” program, reports Good Fruit Grower. The program was first introduced 20 years ago, and it has now been updated to address more aspects of viticulture and fill some gaps in the program. Vinewise could be developed into a certification program, similar to California sustainability programs. The program focuses on continually improving to minimize a farm’s environmental and social footprint, important to consumers concerned about sustainability.
