Forbes magazine highlights regenerative organic farming at Tablas Creek
Tablas Creek Vineyard cultivates growing market for regenerative products with decades-old winemaking practices
–American wineries are increasingly adopting planet-friendly practices to ensure a resilient future and meet growing consumer demand for sustainability, but organic wine production in the United States lags the global rate. It’s partially of a matter of taste, but some winemakers are pursuing new paths to reach consumers with wines made using organic practices.
Thanks to its history of Earth-friendly practices, Tablas Creek Vineyard in Paso Robles, California was selected to be a pilot winery for a certification program overseen by the Regenerative Organic Alliance. The alliance was looking to go beyond the USDA Certified Organic standards by creating a new stakeholder-minded certification that incorporates soil health and animal welfare components as well as social benefit by considering the welfare of farm workers and farmers.
To learn more about this new certification and the role of organic and regenerative agriculture in purpose-driven business for my research, Forbes recently talked with Tablas Creek’s general manager and partner Jason Haas, and viticulturist Jordan Lonborg.
