Lindsay Stevens: Viticulture 2013 Award Winner!

This year at the Viticulture 2013 Conference our winemaker Lindsay Stevens won an award! For her prize, Lindsay chose a sustainability credit that sponsors the construction and installation of a BioSand filter in South Sudan. The award reads that one filter will “provide 20,000 L per year of clean drinking water to the people of South Sudan and avoid approximately 3 tonnes per year of greenhouse gas emissions resulting from deforestation associated with boiling a portion of the water to make it safe to drink.”  The credit was presented to Lindsay by Enviro-Stewards Inc..

Anyone can purchase a credit and provide families with clean drinking water at this site:


What a wonderful and honorable initiative! Thanks Lindsay… you chose your prize well!
