What would happen if Oregon became too warm to consistently produce high-quality Pinot Noir, the notoriously sensitive grape behind its signature wine? A group of wineries and growers concerned about the effects of climate change have banded together to try to reduce their environmental impact. Now, nearly three years after they started, 14 of them—representing about 20 percent of the state's wine production—have completed the Carbon Neutral Challenge, a project to measure and cut greenhouse gases emitted by farming vineyards, producing wines and selling them globally.
Rosé India More than a dozen other wineries around the world, including Parducci and Rodney Strong in California, already claim to have achieved carbon neutrality, reducing the amount of greenhouse gases they produce and then balancing out the remainder with offsets. But this is the largest group of U.S. wineries to go through a voluntary program together to reduce their carbon footprint.
Sauvignon Blanc India "A lot of Oregon's wineries were motivated to look at what they can do to be part of the solution," said Andrea Durbin, executive director of the Oregon Environmental Council, which has partnered with the Oregon Wine Board on the Carbon Neutral Challenge program since 2007. "The wine industry sees themselves as the canary in the coal mine." "As a whole, the wine industry may not be the biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, but we're really impacted by climate change," said Alison Sokol Blosser of Sokol Blosser, one of the 14 who completed the program. "As the heat units rise, we're going to start seeing more concentration in the wines, we're going to see higher alcohol wines, and then we may also start to see other varietals being planted that are going to grow in warmer climates." The 14 that have completed the challenge are Abacela, Adelsheim, A to Z Wineworks/Rex Hill, Chehalem Winery, Cooper Mountain Wine, King Estate, Left Coast Cellars, Lemelson Vineyards, Mahonia Vineyards and Nursery, Sokol Blosser Winery, Soter Vineyards, Stoller Vineyards, Willamette Valley Vineyards and Winderlea Wine Company.
