As the largest advocacy and public policy association for California wine, and the only group representing the industry at the state, federal and international levels, Wine Institute's Officers, Board of Directors andprofessional staff work to create an environment where the wine community can flourish and contribute in a positive fashion to our nation, state and local communities.
Wine Institute helped develop and fund the award-winning Code of Sustainable Winegrowing Practices to promote environmental stewardship and social responsibility in the industry. The Code is a self-assessment tool for vintners and growers that provides practical information on conserving natural resources, protecting the environment and enhancing relationships with employees, neighbors, and local communities. We also host workshops, measure the industry's progress and develop performance targets.
