Sustainable winegrowing is not just something we do. It’s something we live and breathe. Hahn Family Wines was one of the first wineries in the region to have all its estate vineyards certified under the rigorous Sustainability in Practice (SIP) Program.
SIP is a strict third-party program that sets the gold standard for sustainable certification. It challenges growers and wine producers to constantly review and improve practices impacting the land, its people and future generations. We are proud to have earned the SIP seal, and to offer you wines crafted with the strictest conscientious quality.
Sustainable farming is about taking the long view – making decisions that not only enhance the health of the vineyard now but will benefit generations to come. Being SIP Certified shows our dedication to the 3 P’s of Sustainability – People, Planet, Prosperity. We are committed to the ‘3 P’ approach with our measurable set of practices.
“Practicing sustainability forces you to pay attention to the details, to take note and evaluate every step from vine to bottle. By doing so, we improve the health and quality of our vines, our vineyards, our grapes and ultimately our wines.”Philip Hahn

We encourage biodiversity by allowing a multitude of flora and fauna to thrive in the vineyards.
We continuously improve farming practices to make them more environmentally sound, socially just and economically viable.
We improve the soil by natural methods, such as cover crops.
We are a 100% solar-powered winery; we also minimize tractor use to reduce our carbon footprint and use insulation to increase energy efficiency.
We produce the best quality of fruit possible as it is reflected in the quality of our wines.
Safe Pest Management
We introduce beneficial insects such as beetles, lady bugs and lace wings and utilize falcons for bird control.
We regularly monitor soils, plants, and weather, irrigating vines only when needed and we measure water used in the winery to prevent waste.
Pollution and Waste Control
We compost all our pomace and practice recycling.
We consider quality of life issues for the farmworkers and neighbors in our community.
