D2E Month & Celebration
Saturday, April 15, 1pm-4pm
Flying Goat Cellars Tasting Room & Art Salon
1520 E. Chestnut Court, Lompoc, CA
Join Flying Goat in the celebration of CA Wine "Down to Earth"(D2E) Month throughout April. D2E is the annual Wine Institute campaign that highlights and celebrates California’s sustainable viticulture and winemaking leadership.
"Invest in our Planet" is the theme of the national Earth Day and we are sharing some of our many practices toward that goal. Norm and I do not practice viticulture, but we do practice backyard beekeeping, vermiculture and gardening, as well as source from sustainable vineyards. We also have sustainable practices in the cellar and tasting room. Come by the tasting room to learn more on April 15. We'll both be there to talk up our passions with you over a glass of wine and snacks.
The California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA)* offers a new website dedicated to the Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing program at californiasustainablewine.com. Developed for trade, media, consumers and visitors who want to find sustainable wines, wineries and vineyards that are certified with a rigorous third-party audit, the website also illustrates how sustainable vineyards and wineries are making wine in an environmentally and socially responsible way.
“The new certification website is a tool to convey key sustainability messages and to connect certified wines, wineries and vineyards with interested trade and consumers,” said Allison Jordan, CSWA’s Executive Director. “The California wine industry is a global leader in sustainability and well positioned to meet the growing interest we’ve seen in recent research.”
