Other Sustainability Notes

Protector Cellars is the world's first climate positive winery, giving new meaning to the phrase: Drink Responsibly. Our mission is to give wine drinkers an environmentally responsible option that will help preserve the world's winegrowing regions in the face of climate change. By examining every part of the wine production process, we are able to make choices that result in the lowest possible greenhouse gas emissions, even if these decisions break with industry norms. We then go beyond offsetting our carbon footprint to have a net positive impact on the environment every time our wines are purchased.
