As the holder of Napa Green certifications for its vineyards and winery, St. Supéry is deeply committed to sustainability. This is true not only in the vineyards and winery, but also on the dinner plate. Just as sustainably farmed grapes are the basis for its estate-grown wines, St. Supéry seeks out sustainable seafood for the winery’s culinary program and highlights responsible purveyors through its annual Great Sustainable Seafood Tour.

 

In part one of this episode of the St. Supéry Sips podcast, winery CEO Emma Swain chatted with Kyle Connaughton, chef and co-owner at SingleThread Farms in Healdsburg, about the importance of sourcing sustainable seafood in restaurants, and supporting responsible purveyors. In part two, Emma continues the discussion about sustainable seafood with Stuart Brioza, chef and co-owner at State Bird Provisions, The Progress, and The Anchovy Bar in San Francisco.

Over the past 18-24 months, one constant factor for our industry friends and partners has been CHANGE. Changing regulations, changing consumer buying and dining habits, changing traffic patterns and a completely unpredictable supply chain have required everyone selling wine to remain nimble in the face of uncertainty. SKU rationalization and innovation in inventory management have become priority issues in the field.
