Earth Day!!

Earth Day is officially April 22nd but what can we do everyday?
Here in the winery we have implemented several new practices to help conserve water. We are not using wine barrels as our storage vessels any longer which was 90% of our water usage. Just takes 10 gallons of water to make 1 bottle of wine. We have taken 2 of those old barrels to catch the rain water off our winery roof to use as the water in our herb garden. Of course we recycle all our wine bottles used in the tasting room as well as recycling around the house.
Looking to enjoy a local dinner on Earth Day...American Flatbread in Ashburn is offering an Earth Day dinner on April 22nd and it will pair very nicely with our Meritage...great way to eat fresh & local.

Everyone can do something to help and every little bit helps!
Happy Earth Day!!
