SMV BECOMES SIP CERTIFIED
SIERRA MADRE VINEYARD RECEIVES SIP™ CERTIFICATION
The Sierra Madre Vineyard proudly joins the select number of vineyards achieving Sustainability In Practice (SIP)™ Certification, a program recognizing wines produced from grapes grown with sustainable vineyard management practices. The Central Coast Vineyard Team developed the SIP™ Certification program while working to understand and promote best practices in sustainable farming.
We received our SIP™ Certification following successful efforts at conserving water and ensuring water quality as well as promoting both safe pest management and natural habitat maintenance. SIP™ Certified vineyards must also demonstrate a commitment to energy efficiency at the vineyard including efforts to reduce energy use and pursue alternative energy sources. In developing a strong vineyard team led by vineyard manager Rodolfo Callado, the Sierra Madre Vineyard ensures that skilled and sensitive workers care for these vines and commit themselves to careful and attentive management practices.
