As stewards of an estate with three-quarters of its acreage dedicated to natural habitat, we take into account the impact every viticultural and winemaking decision has on the native ecosystems under our care.
Decreasing the winery's impact on the environment has remained a guiding focus for decades. Jordan was among the first wineries certified in the Sonoma Green Business Program (1999) and in the Bay Area Green Business Program (2000). Our winery energy use was certified carbon neutral in 2009, and American-made solar arrays power more than 75% of our electricity needs. From seeding ground cover and composting to introducing beneficial predators and recycling water, our viticulture team works year-round to preserve the sustainability of our land.
We understand that what is best for the earth is ultimately best for our wines. We strive to honor in the bottle what nature so beautifully displays through the soil, the climate and the vine. With sustainable practices at the heart of our business, we hope to carry on this expression of responsibility to the environment so that the enjoyment of our wines continues for generations to come.
