Sustainability in winemaking has become a hot topic, and many wineries have moved in this direction. Whether it be in the vineyard, cellar, or tasting room, wineries around the world have had the opportunity to take on an eco-friendly approach.

Strictly speaking, sustainable wine refers to the practice of making wine in a way that protects the natural environment while making an effort to support local initiatives. These may not look the same in every country and can be done in several different ways.

Currently, California is at the forefront of sustainable measures in the USA, offering several certifications and awards for producers who intend to go green. But around the world, wineries have found innovative ways to reduce their impact on the environment.
