Increasingly, people are gravitating toward sustainable viticulture due to the high quality of the wines it produces, a bigger reason is because of the legacy it leaves. By practicing sustainable grape growing and winemaking, we are ensuring that the land, animals, and rivers to which many of our vineyards drain will still be here for generations to come.
Oregon Certified Sustainable Wine (OCSW) showcases the Oregon wine industry’s commitment to responsible, sustainable vineyard and winery practices. When you buy an OCSW-certified bottle of wine, we’re guaranteeing that the wine in that bottle was made using responsible agriculture practices, responsible winemaking practices, and that both of those processes were certified by an independent third party.
This doesn’t just make good ecological sense; it makes good business sense, too. Research indicates that today’s wine consumers purchase sustainable wines and support sustainable practices.
