db Green Awards 2013 winners announced

Green Company of the Year

Winner: Jackson Family Wines

JFW LogoWith so many entries for this category, a longstanding track record of environmentally friendly business practices was not enough. Each shortlisted company not only demonstrated significant improvements and fresh ideas over the past year, but also a clear vision for the future.

Among these impressive candidates, Kendall Jackson owners Jackson Family Wines stood out for its detailed, attractive presentation that conveyed a very serious, far reaching commitment to green issues.

From pioneering hi-tech energy management systems to implementing simple ideas such as nesting boxes, Jackson demonstrated all the investment clout of a large company combined with the inventive enthusiasm usually associated with smaller operations.

While hundreds of employees are actively involved in making a difference via a variety of smaller scale schemes, Jackson’s extensive research and development investments, such as its recent $3.5 million contribution to the new Sustainable Winery Technology Center at UC Davis demonstrate a commitment to making a difference well outside the confines of its own business.

Runner up: Miguel Torres (Spain)

Torres impressed the judges for its clear-sighted focus on how to build upon its significant sustainability achievements so far. In addition to developing its own fresh schemes, this is a company showing genuine leadership on green issues, both within the wine community and beyond.

Yealands Estate Winery

Villa Maria Estate

Jackson Family Wines

Bodega Matarromera

Miguel Torres (Spain)
