At Taplin Cellars, one of our core tenets is being good stewards of this land that has been in our family for over 150 years. One part of this stewardship that we take very seriously is our commitment to sustainable farming, and doing what we can to take care of the environment and ecosystem that we inhabit.
For example, each year we work to maintain our Fish Friendly Farming Certificate from the California Land Stewardship Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to planning and implementing environmental stewardship, restoration, and enhancement programs and projects, including scientific studies, promotion of beneficial stewardship practices, and resource conservation activities on private and public lands and waterways.
By enrolling in Fish Friendly Farming, farmers like us get access to expertise on such problems as erosion and soil loss, stream bank failure, and water quality degradation. Implementation of this advice by the farmer through the FFF program not only benefits the environment, but also represents a cost-effective and efficient management strategy.
This is one step in a long-term plan to uphold and improve our environmentally-friendly practices, both in the vineyards and in the winery. As the next generation of our family begins to take a more central role, sustainability goals, including adapting to climate change, will be at the forefront of all decision-making. We look forward to continuing to share our progress on this journey.
