California Wines Down To Earth Month 2020

Allison Jordan, the Vice President of Environmental Affairs at the California Wine Institute and Discover California Wines joins me again to talk about Down to Earth Month. In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, it celebrates California’s leadership in sustainable winegrowing. For the past 8 years wineries have offered intriguing events across the state.  While there are understandably no events this year, Allison and I will fill you in on how wineries are connecting with consumers.

During the show I also spoke with the winemaker and COO of Ridge Vineyards, John Olney, as well as the editor of the Slow Wine Guide, Giancarlo Gariglio. This Italian movement is similar to the slow food movement, and now includes California and Oregon wineries. Both guests share what drives them to be sustainable and earth friendly.

I hope this show will inspire you to come up with ways you can live and garden sustainably as we shelter in place. Stay safe!
