The IWSC’s Green Wine Initiative award, in partnership with Green Wine Future, has been created to recognise the myriad of considerate viticulture and wine making practices underway across the world.
We want to highlight the impressive work being carried out by producers already on the journey toward improving their environmental credentials.
Small or large, part of a cooperative or a one-man vintner, we want to hear from businesses of all shapes and sizes about the good work being carried out to improve your wine-making production processes. Rewarding organisations showing creativity and innovation, a bursary of £7.5k will be granted to the winner, courtesy of the IWSC Foundation.
Applicants will be able to provide quantitative evidence on the nature of the improvements made and can demonstrate a causal relationship between activities undertaken and improvements achieved. Visible progress to becoming a more sustainable organisation must be demonstrated. Initiatives must already be underway; it is not enough to simply demonstrate intention.
The award is open to all international wine producers: entry to the IWSC wine awards is not required.
