Energy Management Throughout Wine Production

Watch online: anytime, anywhere

From irrigation pumps to winery lighting, to the company’s fleet, mechanization in the vineyard, energy used for packaging production and transportation, no matter to what stage of wine production you may look at, energy consumption and management is at the core of the problem as well as the solution.

Wine businesses of different sizes, regions and countries are eager to embrace this transition, but numerous challenges arise. How and where can I improve my energy efficiency along the wine value chain? What options are suitable for my business, my region? What is the most sustainable energy approach? Can different types of energy coexist? How long will it take to achieve the payback for each option? How can I store the produced energy in place so it can be used according to my needs? It is financial sustainable to do it alone or in collaboration with others? On grid or off grid?

Sustainability: The Real Substance

Watch online: anytime, anywhere

Sustainability is sometimes dismissed as lacking teeth and primarily serving as a marketing tool. We’ll discuss the rigor and substance behind Napa Green and other sustainability certifications, and why it is essential that conscientious businesses communicate with employees, customers and guests about how and what sustainability really is. Certified sustainable wineries and businesses are committed to continuing improvement in caring for the health of nature and the health of employees and community, which enhances the health and longevity of the businesses themselves. Join us to explore how three wineries put their bold sustainability words into action.
