What does LIVE do that is vastly different than other certifiers?
Our certification focuses on local and regional sustainability issues at the whole-farm level. We certify non-vineyard portions of our member farms using our partner Salmon-Safe’s standards. We also leverage our certification membership to actively improve the industry’s sustainability. One recent example of this was our organization of recycling hubs for #4 plastic typically used on wrapping pallets. This plastic was previously sent to a landfill because of a lack of recycling resources for individual wineries.
