Oregon Wineries Embrace 'Green' Philosophy

     No state takes the “green movement” more seriously than Oregon, and that certainly goes for Oregon’s grape growers and wine estates.

     When the governor of the state put forth the Carbon Neutral Challenge Initiative, more than two dozen wineries got involved right away, embracing everything from solar energy to biodiesel, and hydroelectricity to compact fluorescent lighting.

     At Willamette Valley Vineyards, one of Oregon’s largest producers, corks are now being sourced from cork grown in Rainforest Alliance-certified forests.
