WineGB announce Sustainable Wineries certification
The UK has announced the creation of Sustainable Wines of Great Britain (SWGB). The new certification program has been widely supported by many of the major UK wineries and provides an audited certification scheme to show that the wineries are following sustainable Viticultural practices. SWGB has created a set of guidelines, which detail best practice, set minimum standards and list prohibited practices. These will be reviewed annually and will be subject to “continuous improvement”.
