Stoller Commits to Sustainable Winemaking with LIVE Certification
At Stoller, we are committed to leading the charge in sustainable winemaking. Through energy efficient systems and an effort to eliminate negative environmental impact, we are proud to meet the highest standards for sustainable viticulture through LIVE certifications.
LIVE, (Low Input Viticulture and Enology), is a non-profit organization that provides education and independent 3rd-party certifications for vineyards and wineries using international standards of sustainable viticulture and enology practices in wine-grape and wine production. Examples of LIVE vineyard practices include planting cover crops, maintaining natural areas for wildlife and forgoing many chemical sprays. LIVE winery certification focuses on energy efficiency, safety, and wastewater treatment. Our vineyard became LIVE certified in 2006, and the winery achieved certification in 2009.
