As part of its commitment to the local community, Acacia Vineyard, a winery in California’s Carneros growing region, has installed two educational panels at the Napa-Sonoma Marshes Wildlife Area.
The panels were developed in partnership with the California Department of Fish and Game to educate the public about the importance and value of improving and restoring wetlands in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
“The marsh provides an important habitat for a variety of fish, waterfowl, wildlife and plant species, several of which are threatened or endangered,” says California Department of Fish & Game Senior Wildlife Biologist Larry Wyckoff. “We have limited funding, so this generous donation from Acacia Vineyard is critical in helping us educate the public about the importance of restoring this marsh.”
Adds Acacia winemaker Matthew Glynn: “We believe in sustainability and want to do our part to preserve this piece of our Carneros heritage that helps us make such compelling wines. The Napa-Sonoma Marsh gives us such beautiful afternoon breezes and evening fog that allow our grapes to develop more concentrated, complex flavors.”
