What does it mean to be a Certified Sustainability Winery?
In order for Ontario wineries to be a certified sustainable winery, they must complete an in-depth questionnaire to validate their sustainable practices that are verified through an independent audit. To date only 13 Ontario wineries have achieved this certification.
Our incorporated environmentally responsible technologies include:
o Geo-thermal systems for heating and cooling.
o Environmentally sensitive waste management system.
o The use of ozone to clean, reducing the use of chemicals in the winery.
o Low impact viticulture practices to manage vineyard.
o Gravity flow reduces the energy required to make wine.
o Landscaping that complements natural surroundings.
o Underground barrel cellars offering natural temperature and humidity control.
o Light-weight glass options minimizes carbon footprint.
When you see the green leaf logo, you are guaranteed that the winery has adhered to a sustainable “soil to shelf” path throughout the winemaking process.
