A new study detailing the widespread adoption of sustainable winegrowing practices in California's industry has been released.

Produced by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance, the report received strong support from vintners, growers, scientists, and government officials, with the entire sector using a common assessment tool and the US Department of Agriculture awarding US$475,000 to the project.

Participants evaluated their operations using a 500-page workbook of best management practices. Results represent about 40% of California's production.

Providing baseline information for 13 areas of sustainable winegrowing practices, the report shows widespread adoption in water conservation, pesticide risk reduction and soil management, with further action required in energy conservation and material handling.
