Coming June 10th 2021
June 9th – SONOMA CA: This June, winemakers and vineyardists looking to break into sustainable viticulture will have a new guide to the best in green-minded practices in the Sonoma-Napa region. Healthy Vines, Pure Wines – Methods in Organic, Biodynamic, Natural and Sustainable Viticulture, from eco-tourism advocates Pamela Lanier and J. N. Hughes, will feature overviews of sustainable labels and what they mean, details of various organic and sustainable vineyard practices such as use of cover crops and beneficial insects, and in-depth examinations of sixteen California wineries committed to environmentally responsible business practices. Along with direct input from legendary organic leader and founder of the EcoFarm Conference, Amigo Bob Cantisano, this publication aims to cover all the bases as an introduction to the myriad ways viticulture can be practiced sustainably.
“With yet another dry growing season underway, more winemakers are recognizing that they can be a vital and important part of climate solutions in their region.” Pamela Lanier said. “Our book provides a one-stop resource on organic, sustainable, and regenerative methods with up-to-date case studies from the vineyards and wineries who are successfully putting those methods to work.”
“We worked with a wide range of local wineries for our field research, including Frog’s Leap, Tres Sabores, Marimar, Benziger, and others,” J. N. Hughes said. “What they’ve achieved in their vineyards and production facilities can be replicated by other growers who want to reduce their own carbon output and environmental impact.”
- The legacy of Amigo Bob Cantisano, visionary advocate of sustainable agriculture and organic winemaking, with an encompassing account of the methods he championed and advice he gave to growers transitioning to closed system farming methods.
- Interviews with Jean-Charles Boisset, standard-bearer for Biodynamic Viticulture, and pioneering organic winemakers Phil and Sam Coturri.
- A focus on the emerging role of women in leadership within the wine industry and a glimpse of what the future can hold for wine producers and consumers.
