Sustainability Story

Fetzer has been building a better tomorrow since 1968, and is the namesake brand of the largest Certified B Corp winery in the U.S. Founded by visionary vintner Barney Fetzer in Mendocino County, California, Fetzer puts people and planet first and continues to innovate in all things sustainability, building on a legacy spanning five decades pioneering thoughtful winegrowing practices. At Fetzer, we recognize the urgent need to address the climate crisis by reducing carbon pollution and believe that conscious consumers will lead the way. Our values are reflected in our Certified Sustainable winery that operates on 100% renewable energy and is certified Zero Waste, as well as through the continuous improvement of our operations to further reduce water and energy use. Building on this foundation, the Climate Neutral certification further commits Fetzer to transparent climate action. We are excited about the fact that when consumers see a brand with a Climate Neutral Certified label, they are empowered to align their purchases with their values for helping to build a better tomorrow. In keeping with our values and climate goals, Fetzer is going beyond the core requirements of the Climate Neutral certification to become climate positive. By choosing to offset more emissions than we produce, we are helping to create a net positive benefit for the climate. This effort is in line with our overarching vision to be climate positive across all brands and scopes of business by 2030. Ultimately, everything we do reflects our deep commitment to giving back more than we take.
