The Sonoma County Winegrowers represent 1,800 growers. Within five years they want 100% sustainably grown grapes for all vineyards in the county. This will be the country's first sustainable wine region. All vineyard land will be assessed to see what is needed and a plan created to move to sustainability (many vineyards are already there). A third party will determine certification. It's quite a project.
