Environmental stewardship is incredibly important to us at St. Supéry, and we strive each day to “walk the walk” in our vineyards, in the cellar and even in our business offices. That’s why we were so excited to be named last month as a California Green Medal winner!
Each year, as part of the Sustainable Winegrowing Leadership Awards, a panel of leading wine and sustainability experts presents medals in four different categories, including Environment, Community, Business and Leader. There’s only one winner for the entire state in each category, which makes receiving the Environment award an incredible honor for St. Supéry.
Green Medal recipients convened on April 11 at the California State Capitol in Sacramento for an awards ceremony, and our winemaker, Brooke Shenk, was there to represent the St. Supéry team.
So what does it take to win a Green Medal for environmental stewardship? Here are just a few of the ways in which we help preserve and protect our natural resources here at St. Supéry:
With an estate of this size, there is a lot to manage, so our Green Team helps everyone stay on top of St. Supéry’s sustainable practices. The team also keeps an eye out for new eco-friendly practices and technologies, so we’re always improving.
We couldn’t be prouder of our Green Medal award, and are more inspired than ever to continue leading the way for the sake of future generations. It is just the right thing to do.
