The New York Wine & Grape Foundation’s Sustainability Program is pleased to announce that registration for the 2024 Program Year is Open!
The New York Sustainable Winegrowing program is a comprehensive program that includes educational events and resources as well as an official certification process for vineyards who are seeking to advance their environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
Certification is based on VineBalance – a workbook based on science backed regionally defined standards, as well as independent third-party audits.
The 2024 Edition of VineBalance was made possible through a robust stakeholder engagement process including grape growers, winemakers, and conservationists from across New York State. This level of statewide industry participation is essential, as the workbook is designed to apply to all winegrowing regions and grape varieties of New York.
Recruitment for the 2024 New York Sustainable Winegrowing program is now under way.
