Carbon Emission Reduction Strategies for Wineries and Vineyards
by L.M. Archer
“Need proof of climate change? Just ask a winemaker.”
So begins my cover story on carbon emission strategies for wineries and vineyards in the April 2023 issue of Wine Business Monthly Magazine.
Indeed. “According to the 2021 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Global Climate Report, 2013-2021 rank among the hottest years on record,” my story continues. “Annual harvests bear witness to these grim statistics.”
To counter climate change, some winemakers seek to mitigate their carbon emissions. Strategies vary, from carbon sequestration, to concrete winery floors made from biochar.
Vineyards and wineries featured in my article include Bordeaux’s Château Montrose, Bourgogne’s Domaine Dujac, and Languedoc’s Château Maris, all in France.
Additionally, Montes Winery in Chile, and Silver Thread Vineyard in the New York’s Finger Lakes both share their new world approaches.
Finally, Remy Wines and Hope Well Wines in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and Troon Vineyard in southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley, all share their best practices for sequestering carbon, too.
Not a bad line-up of wine industry sustainability leaders sharing their expertise.
Just in time for Earth Day!
