Celebrate "Earth Day"...become an "Environmental Custodian"!
Every action that we take should be measured against its impact on our environment. Wines, like most goods and services, should be created as close as possible to the point of consumption. The shipping of wines and grape juices across countries, oceans and around the world makes NO environmental sense. The waste of fossil fuels and polution created by their transportation cannot be justified. Our children and grandchildren will pay the environmental bill.
Unlike most vineyard and wineries today, we at Bunker Hill Vineyard and Winery grow 100% of our own grapes. All of our wine labels proudly state..."Grown, Produced, Vinted and Bottled" by us! We generate NO environmental transportaion costs. Our carbon footprint is...Zero! 100% of our wine bottles are recycled and locally sourced. We encourage all vineyard/wineries to return to to their roots. Relearn how to grow and care for their own grapes and produce their wines in a manner that's environmentally sustainable. As informed and enlightened consumers, we should seek out and support our local vineyard and wineries that are practicing sustainable agriculture.
To become an "Environmental Custodian" is easy and painless. Simply acknowledging that we are "caretakers and keepers" of the environment is all that it takes. Together, we can help make this Earth Day and all future Earth Days the days of..."Wine and Roses"!
