40 of the most outstanding wineries committed worldwide for a more sustainable industry highlighted by the Robert Parker Green Emblem

SINGAPORE & NAPA –
Media OutReach – 16 November 2022 – In 2021,
Robert Parker Wine Advocate made the first move by a wine criticism site to empower wine lovers seeking sustainable wines with editorial innovations. Enhancements on the website included new search filters for Organic and Biodynamic certified wines, and the Green Emblem recognition, given to selected wineries that have demonstrated extraordinary efforts in pursuit of environmentally friendly practices was also introduced.

“With increasing demand from passionate consumers for wines that are made more sustainably, our Green Emblem initiative aims at highlighting winemakers who have demonstrated extraordinary efforts in practicing environmentally friendly viticulture in the face of evolving climate challenges. The ambition of our approach is to amplify and highlight sustainable practices in wineries by putting them in the spotlight.” Says
Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Editor-in-Chief, Joe Czerwinski.
The Robert Parker Green Emblem: a dedicated recognition for inspiring wineries.
To qualify for the Green Emblem award, a winery may or may not already be organic and/or biodynamic certified. Beyond or apart from certification, the producer needs to be an outstanding proponent of sustainability who looks toward long-term environmental protection and biodiversity. Each year,
Robert Parker Wine Advocate reviewers nominate new candidates from their regions that are worthy of the Robert Parker Green Emblem. Once a winery is recognized, all of their wines will carry the Robert Parker Green Emblem going forward, until changes at the winery may result in the recognition being rescinded.
From France, Portugal or Italy, sustainable inspirations are everywhere.
The honorees this year have impressed the
Robert Parker Wine Advocate reviewers with their breadth and depth of sustainable practices that stand out in their fields. From these 16 outstandingly inspiring wineries, located in 7 countries, we can spotlight
Château Maris in Languedoc, France. It is the first certified B-Corp winery in Europe and one of only 26 in the world, and its winery is constructed out of plant-based “hempcrete” and is energy self-sufficient, biodegradable and carbon-negative.
Herdade do Esporão in Alentejo, Portugal, is one of the world’s largest producers of certified organic wines, who’s sustainable initiatives have also won them a MICHELIN Green Star for the restaurant at Esporão, among other accolades.
In Italy,
Avignonesi in Tuscany has implemented multiple protocols across conservation;
E. Pira & Figli – Chiara Boschis in Barolo, has set out to make the Cannubi MGA entirely organically farmed and certified; and
Arianna Occhipinti, the young humanist of her eponymous winery has laid out a vision of organic, biodynamic and sustainable winemaking.
