Mother Nature Network Names 8 Top Eco-Friendly Wineries


OK, so I am a little late on this one. But as soon as I saw this, I knew I had to post about this. Very, very cool stuff.
Not just in California anymore Sidney Stevens Mother Nature Network January 10, 2011 Most of the news about sustainable wineries seems to come from out West, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some green wine action going on back East, too. Several East Coast vineyards use organic methods, and a few even go above and beyond with green buildings and other eco-practices. Oh, and did we mention, several also produce award-winning wines that definitely warrant a sip or two or three? Here are the wineries: Red Tail Ridge, Penn Yan, NY Black Ankle Vineyards, Mt. Airy, MD Shelburne Vineyards, Shelburne, VT McRitchie Winery & Ciderworks, Thurmond, NC Heron Hill Winery, Hammondsport, NY Crossings Vineyard & Winery, Washington Crossing, PA DuCard Vineyards, Etlan, VA Shinn Estate Vineyards, Mattituck, NY Congrats to all!
