Vineyard with birdhouse

OUR LANDS

All of our vineyards in California and Oregon are third-party certified sustainable. We leave most of our lands unplanted, which protects thousands of acres to preserve biodiversity. Native trees and riparian corridors surround our vineyards to create habitats for wild species such as beneficial birds and insects that naturally control pests.

 

GREENHOUSE GAS (GHG) EMISSIONS

Since establishing a baseline in 2015, we’ve reduced our greenhouse gas intensity per gallon of wine we produce by 37%. We’re working towards our 2030 goal to reduce total emissions 50% by 2030 and 80% by 2045.

 

INTERNATIONAL WINERIES FOR CLIMATE ACTION

In 2019, Jackson Family Wines and Spain’s Familia Torres co-founded International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA) to galvanize the global wine industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate impacts in vineyard and winery operations. IWCA winery members are unified by a shared goal to reduce total emissions 50% by 2030 and 80% by 2045. To learn more, visit https://www.iwcawine.org/

 

RENEWABLE ENERGY

We’re the largest generator of onsite solar energy in the U.S. wine industry, producing 8.6 million kWh of emissions free, renewable electricity across 11 wineries per year.

 

WATER CONSERVATION AND REUSE

Water is essential to making great wines, and we’ve worked hard to do more to manage and conserve precious water resources. Since 2008, we’ve reduced our winery water intensity 59%, which is equivalent to saving 31 million gallons annually. As a leader in water management, we only use 3.68 gallons of water to make one gallon of wine.

 

CARBON FARMING TRIAL

We’re the first wine company in California to explore the scalability of carbon farming (sequestering atmospheric carbon dioxide in the soil to reverse climate change) in a working vineyard through a collaboration with the California Department of Food & Agriculture.

 

ZERO WASTE

We’ve been re-imagining our relationship with what we discard, finding new ways to recycle, compost or return items. In 2018 our wineries achieved a 98% waste diversion rate.

 

GIVING BACK

Each year, our company supports more than 200 non-profits each year working to build stronger communities and our employees across the world have volunteered more than 20,000 hours in our local communities since 2016.
