We continue advancing our sustainability efforts at the winery and the addition of a pulper in our kitchen is helping us do just that. The state-of-the-art pulper shreds kitchen scraps, paper products and any non-protein leftovers into an organic pulp that is then added to our compost pile at the vineyard. Our compost then becomes vital a nutrient for the vines.
Every month the pulper keeps 24 commercial trash bins from being sent to the landfill. Facility Manager Terry Pepin says, “Those 24 trash bins are just the preliminary numbers, I expect to be saving even more waste in the near future.” From the local and organic produce we use in the restaurant to our recycled glass bottles, we are doing our best to reduce our environmental footprint!
