Sustainable Winemaking Initiatives

sustainable_green_JOLO

Being “green” is a key theme for JOLO Winery & Vineyards. Our eco-friendly initiatives include the use of burnt vine clippings and compost for fertilizers, the use of baking soda and hot sauce in place of most insecticides, and the use of reclaimed creek and rain water as the only added source of irrigation for the vines.

As of June 2015 JOLO Winery & Vineyards is now a recognized member of the North Carolina Green Travel Initiative program. We earned a score of “Two Dogwood Blossoms,” which acknowledges our care about our environment by operating a sustainable business.
