Sense and sustainability: How wine producers are protecting the environment

Cindy Devries, Chief Operating Officer, Fetzer Vineyards

“Operating sustainably at Fetzer Vineyards is something we accomplish with the support and collaboration of our entire organisation.

We have a full-time colleague dedicated to identifying and solving complex sustainability issues while pioneering regenerative practices in the wine industry. Supporting her efforts is a cross- departmental group that develops sustainability-focused initiatives, and shares ideas for engaging employees in sustainability efforts.

Building on 50 years of sustainable practices, during which time we have successfully developed Bonterra into a global leader in organic wine, and have operated on renewable energy for nearly three decades, today we’re looking to share our findings to inspire others to pursue sustainable practices.”
