Sustainably Farmed & Green Certified
Respect for the land and sustainable farming practices are strong cultural beliefs held by the Cedar Band of Paiutes. We build our business on respect for the land, responsible energy use, and a desire to make the best and most environmentally friendly wine possible. Unlike other farming practices, sustainable winegrowing is all encompassing in its approach. We are not only concerned with the health of the vineyard but its surrounding natural environment as well. Sustainable farming is the balance of environmental health, economic profitability and social equity. We show our commitment to sustainability by having our wine certified sustainable through The Lodi Rules for Sustainable Wine Growing.
“The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us; that which we put into the ground, She returns to us.”
The Lodi Rules are sustainable winegrowing standards that are designed to lead to measurable improvements in environmental health of the ecosystem, society and wine quality. Protected Harvest, an American non-profit organization headquartered in Soquel, California, certifies sustainably grown crops by examining vineyards and practices to ensure we meet all requirements (www.protectedharvest.org). Look for the Lodi Rules logo on our wines. Learn more about the Lodi Rules on their website.
