Promoting Sustainable Vineyard Practices

In the vineyard, we strive to protect the resources valuable to our farms and our communities. We are the Vineyard Team, a network of 300 local farmers, educating and guiding towards sustainable vineyard practices for 20 years.

Mission Statement

The Team will be a model for wine grape growers and will promote the public trust of stewardship for natural resources.
