Tablas Creek is the First Regenerative Organic Certified™ (ROC™) Winery in America
We could not be prouder to announce that the Regenerative Organic Alliance has awarded us Regenerative Organic Certified™ (ROC™) status. This means that we have been audited for our implementation of the highest standard of sustainable farming in soil health, carbon capture, biodiversity, animal welfare, and farmworker fairness.
Viticulturist Jordan Lonborg explains why this is such an important milestone in a recent blog:
Tablas Creek Vineyard has always been extremely proud of our organic and biodynamic certifications. That said, we have never felt that the certifications were ends in and of themselves. And there are pieces of both of those protocols that we think could be improved. Anyway, we farm the way we do because we feel that it is the right thing to do for the land and the people that work here. But this certification is different. It sends a powerful message to the wine industry, consumers, and our local community. It shows them that Tablas Creek is not willing to accept anything less than the very highest standard for our soils, our animals, and the welfare of the people who work here.
