“Our highest priority is to preserve and protect these lands now and for future generations.” – Rob Mercer
Through our farming and winery practices, we uphold the long-standing belief that sustainability and conservation are the single most important factors in the continued success of our operations. Sustainability practices focus on water management, soil and fertility management, integrated pest management, waste management, and research. Conservation efforts emphasize energy management, wildlife habitat improvement, native plant protection, weed suppression, water management and soil protection.
In addition to our on-going, day to day efforts, we are actively engaged in a number of industry-wide initiatives such as the Vinewise sustainable project. We will continue to seek out and implement the best long-term methodologies to sustain and conserve the lands entrusted to our care.
