BORDEAUX, France, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- How sustainable can a glass of Planet Bordeaux wine be? A lot more than you may think. For the past 20 years, Bordeaux has been committed to the development of sustainable viticulture through research, investment, education and innovation.

As of 2017, 60% of Bordeaux vineyards are under sustainable agriculture, with the objective of 100%. Representing over 50% of the Bordeaux wine region, Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur winemakers are in the vanguard of this movement. After measuring the carbon footprint in 2008 and again in 2012, the Bordeaux Wine Bureau (CIVB) created the “2020 Climate Plan” that targets reducing CO emissions by 20%, along with other greenhouse gases, fossil fuel and water consumption, and increasing the use of renewable energies by 20%.

The goal of Planet Bordeaux winemakers is to make high-quality wine while prioritizing the environment and the expectations of their consumers. Every year more vineyards are certified organic and biodynamic, as well as other sustainable agriculture certifications. But just because there is no label on the bottle doesn’t mean sustainable initiatives aren’t at work. Many estates practice “integrated viticulture” where minimal treatments are given on an as-needed basis. Detailed examples of sustainable efforts made by Bordeaux châteaux may be found at (currently in French only). Your glass of Planet Bordeaux wine is more sustainable than you may know, and will continue to be so in the future.
