Sustainability Practices on the Hill

Being green has never been more important. 

In order to reduce the use of some pesticides, we employ a technique to flood vineyards with a specific pheromone to impede the reproduction of certain bug species instead of using harsher pesticides.  

Onsite at Pippin we use a 10 year rated netting.  This netting means we don’t have to put up, take down, and throw away many yards of plastic bird netting each year to reduce our waste.  

Head Gardener Diane and Production Manager Brooks have tried to be cognizant of certain invasive species around the property, and specifically the spotted lantern fly has drawn our attention to one of its favorite food sources:  the tree of heaven.  We have removed a number of these trees around the property for the betterment of our property’s ecosystem.
