Wine Region Proposes 100% Sustainability

The San Francisco Gate reports:

The Sonoma County Winegrape Commission wants every vineyard and winery in its domain to be certified sustainable in the next five years.

..."It's being a good steward, a good employer and a good neighbor," (the commission's president) said, explaining that it comes down to using fewer chemicals and less water, and preserving the natural resources of the land."

..."What's unique about Sonoma is the goal of 100 percent participation within a set time," (a state official) said. "It's pretty bold to have that level of commitment on a county-wide base system."
