Sustainably farmed vineyards at Kendall-Jackson.

We Take Big Steps To Leave Small Footprints

For over 30 years, our family has been making great wine. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s the better the soil the better the wine. So every day we work to ensure the healthy future of the land all around us – adopting clean energy practices, ensuring biodiversity, and using one-third less water than industry average.

Water Conservation

Kendall-Jackson wines are produced with one-third less water than industry standard.

Since 2008, we have reduced our water intensity 41% by investing in conservation technologies like barrel washing, recycling and precision drip irrigation that saves over 28 MM gallons per year.

100% of our estate vineyards and wineries are certified sustainable by the CCSW Winegrowing program.
