Vineyard Team

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 Vineyard Team will identify and promote the most environmentally safe, viticulturally and economically sustainable farming methods, while maintaining or improving quality and flavor of wine grapes. The Team will be a model for wine grape growers and will promote the public trust of stewardship for natural resources.
