From regenerative farming and eco-friendly packaging to water treatment, employee wellness and beyond, there’s a lot to consider when it comes to sustainability in wine.
In this episode, we discuss components that factor into the vast concept of sustainability, and how consumers can feel more informed and empowered on ways to best support the growers, winemakers and wineries paving the way to a positive future.
Assistant Editor Jacy Topps speaks with two industry experts—Katie Jackson of Jackson Family Wines and International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA), and Tobias Webb of Sustainable Wine and the Sustainable Wine Roundtable—about current wine industry initiatives and plans to mitigate climate change.
