Be the Change
Your wine dinner ticket will be your donation (minimum $2500) and will build a pool of matching funds for meaningful sustainability and climate action projects. These funds will be distributed to growers and vintners that show the greatest financial need and, critically, opportunity for change and impact.
It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s essential. This is our future, the future of our children, the future of our community, of our individual and collective health and longevity.
As Dr. Kimberley Nicholas shares in Under the Sky We Make:
It’s warming. It’s us. We’re sure. It’s bad. We can fix it.
Our winegrowing region has weathered three megafires in the past five years. We’ve been in a 500-year drought, meaning drought conditions haven’t been this severe in 500 years. Last year, temperatures in September exceeded 115° in some areas, destroying grapes on the verge of being made into beautiful wines.
Proactive forest thinning and invasives removal to create healthier forests more resilient to fire; Building healthy soils full of happy microbes that store carbon, water, and nutrients and make vines more resilient to drought and heat extremes; Reducing emissions by shifting to electric tractors and fleets, and generating local renewable energy...it's not just the right thing to do, it's essential.
