Reason #3: LODIRULES™.

LODIRULES™ was launched in 2005. It is California’s first 3rd party-certified sustainable winegrowing certification program. In practical terms, it means that they are doing many “right things”:

1. They are investing in Human Resources, training their people to perform with efficiency, but without neglecting the other very important component of this equation: safety.

2. The vineyards are part of the ecosystem. With that in mind, they preserve native trees, protecting the wildlife habitat. Above is a picture of their “box for owls.” They are the natural predators of burrowing rodents such as gophers, which is part of their Integrated Pest Management.

3. Water Management. They make the best of their water use by constantly monitoring soil moisture and actually finding out the amount of water needed by the vines.
