  • The WVWA’s Sustainability Task Force has identified packaging initiatives as a strategic priority. To get involved with the Sustainability Task Force, contact Scott Neal.

  • In Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where more than 97% of the white oak’s historic habitat has already disappeared, vineyard and forest landowners have signed on to the Oak Accord as a way to protect and restore more than 1,500 acres of the Willamette Valley’s fragile ecosystem.

  • LIVE Certification

    LIVE supports environmentally and socially responsible winegrowing through third-party certification and education. Our roots are in the Pacific Northwest and our standard is internationally accredited. 

    Note: LIVE and Salmon-Safe are a dual certification, so all LIVE vineyards are Salmon-Safe, but be aware that the certification renewal cycles are different. See the LIVE website for more information. 


    Salmon Safe Certification

    Operated in partnership with LIVE as well as through Oregon Tilth and Demeter, Salmon-Safe for winegrowing focuses on reducing vineyard runoff, water quality protection, and enhancement of native biodiversity on vineyard sites.


    Oregon Tilth Organic Certification

    Our mission to make our food system and agriculture biologically sound and socially equitable requires us to find practical ways to tackle big challenges. Today, we look for opportunities to bring everyone to the table – farmers, processors, government agencies, nonprofits, businesses and consumers – to find the best solutions to meet challenges head on.


    Demeter Biodynamic ® Certification 

    We are the worldwide movement of biodynamic agriculture, a holistic, ecological and ethical approach.
    Demeter is the brand for certified products from biodynamic farming. 


    B Corporation Certification

    Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.


    Deep Roots Coalition

    Wineries in the Deep Roots Coalition grow and source grapes exclusively from non-irrigated vineyards for conservation of agricultural water supplies as well as the authenticity of the resulting wine.
