California vintners and growers have broadly embraced sustainable and other green wine-growing practices to protect and preserve our signature Golden State industry. Plans and decisions made throughout the wine-growing year reflect a deep commitment to environmental stewardship, social responsibility and the desire to pass land businesses on to future generations.
Join Janet Fletcher and a distinguished panel of vintners and experts as they discuss sustainable wine growing and examine the stories of California vintners and growers across the state. After the program, join the panel to enjoy wine tasting and conversation featuring wines discussed by the panel and in Down to Earth.
