All prominent wine regions retain a signature in their wines that is expressed by its soil, proximity to bodies of water, elevations of terrain and or a host of other geological factors. Sannino Vineyard’s artistic and passionate expression of this terroir is what defines wines from Sannino Vineyard.
Sustainability At Sannino Vineyard
We are proud members of Long Island Sustainable Winegrowing. It is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that provides education and certification for Long Island vineyards. LISW uses international standards of sustainable practices in quality wine-grape production that have been refined for the northeast utilized through the VineBalance Workbook. These practices are based on an independent 3rd-party-verified checklist system consisting of recommended and prohibited practices and materials, thoughtful planning and numerous ecological options.
Sustainable Viticulture is a concept, a paradigm and a set of local "best practices". The three components that make up sustainability are simply: environmental stewardship, social equity, and economic viability. It can be seen as a pathway that leads to improving environmental stewardship, worker safety, job satisfaction and economic fairness, and results in economic success over generations. It is a pathway to greater awareness of the consequences of one's actions on the farm, in the workplace, in the community, and the wider world around us. Sustainable vineyards and wineries help stabilize the economies of the communities where they reside.
