Each bottle of Highlands 41 is grown from sustainably farmed estate vineyards in Paso Robles and Monterey and produced at the Riboli Family’s CSWA sustainably-certified, state-of-the-art winery. “We are protecting and preserving our planet for many more adventures to come,” said Riboli. “We do so through a rigorous examination of our environmentally friendly farming practices, installation of solar panels, and state-of-the-art wastewater treatment and reclamation. We are passionate about finding the next solution to further decrease our environmental footprint.”
