Accelerating a sustainable future for wine.
1% For Wine.
You’re making it happen.
There’s a good chance the wine you’re drinking doesn’t taste great, was made from conventionally farmed grapes produced with chemicals that are harmful to your health, and contributes to environmental destruction.
Responsibly made wines taste better, are better for you, and better for the planet. Wines labeled organic, biodynamic, or that have other eco-certifications rate on average six points higher in professional blind tastings1. These wines are free of pesticides and herbicides and contribute to the regeneration of soils and the environment.
Less than 3% of the world’s wines are produced naturally today2. The good news is that number is growing, and we’re doing our part to accelerate the transition in the vineyard, the winemaking process, and the packaging and distribution of wine. By 2030, our goal is to have at least 10% of the world’s wine produced responsibly.

We work only with responsible winemakers who take care of their little piece of the planet and pledge to keep it free of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides in order to produce better quality wine and improve the environment for future generations.
But consumers play a big part too. The products we buy and use every day shape the world around us. We must raise consumer awareness about the detrimental effects of the status quo in wine and the importance of more responsible wine production, distribution and consumption.
Education is key. The most important educators are our wine advisors who care deeply about the future of the world of wine. Passionate, knowledgeable and welcoming wine educators are the vital conduit between the producer and consumer.
