Stoller Family Estate Achieves B Corp Certification
Stoller Family Estate is proud to announce it has achieved B Corp Certification status. Companies certified as B Corps meet the highest standard of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability. The certification continues the commitment to preserve the Stoller family legacy through protecting the environment and enriching its community.
“I believe that when you build something, you do it for a sustainable reason,” said Bill Stoller, founder and owner of Stoller Family Estate. “I wanted to build a company that could last at least 200 years, and to do this, we must take care of our land and community. Our B Corp certification is another example of Stoller Family Estate’s dedication to this goal.”
In 1993, Stoller purchased his family’s farm with the vision of creating a world-class vineyard. Located in the Dundee Hills AVA of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the winery was the first in the world to achieve LEED Gold certification. Additionally, the estate is LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe certified. The estate is also home to one of the largest private Oak Savanna in Yamhill County as part of our dedication to preserving ecological restoration areas for indigenous plant and wildlife.
As thought leaders in the community, Stoller Family Estate is a strategic partner in Innovate Oregon, (the foundation arm of the Technology Association of Oregon) which is helping to develop the next generation of innovators to tackle some of the biggest employment challenges facing our state. The first initiative for the community is Innovate Yamhill – comprised of efforts in Dayton, Yamhill-Carlton, Willamina and Amity – to show how bold, agile ways of developing talent can provide a workforce for the future.
Stoller Family Estate joins A to Z Wineworks, Sokol Blosser, Winderlea and Patton Valley Vineyards, making it the fifth Oregon winery and 89th company in Oregon to attain the status. To date, there are more than 2,200 B Corporations spanning 130 industries in more than 50 countries around the world.
