Dutton Estate Hard Cider

 

As a family-owned multi-generational business, sustainability has many levels of importance to us.

Our winery is an active participant in the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) and has been certified since 2016.   All of our Dutton Ranch vineyards are 100% Fish-Friendly Farming certified since 2014 to protect endangered coho salmon and steelhead trout. Our Dutton Ranch vineyards are certified Sonoma County Sustainable. Beginning with the 2017 vintage, Dutton Estate wines feature the Sonoma County Sustainably Farmed Grapes logo on our wine bottles. We pleased to help lead this effort in our region.

Third-party certification for these programs increase the wine industry’s long-term sustainability by following identified best practices, ensuring continual improvement, and keeping everyone honest and transparent.
