On Saturday, November 5, 2011, at Mary Agatha Furth Center in Windsor, California winery President Don Wallace was presented with a Leadership in Sustainability Award through the Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy.
For more than 20 years, Don has been actively involved in sustainable agriculture in Sonoma County. First suggesting sustainable grape growing to the Wine Institute of California, Don's early adoption of concepts such as cover crops, soil mapping, water emitters and creating a symbiotic, healthy environment for the vineyard, have made him a leader among sustainable grape growers in the wine industry.
All of us at the winery are proud of Don for his commitment to the environment and sustainable grape growing. With Don's leadership in place, our family owned winery is assured of leaving a small carbon foot print and the land in better shape for a third generation of ownership.
