The month is aimed at bringing attention to the state's leadership in sustainable winegrowing and winemaking.

"Our California Sustainable Winegrowing Program leads the world in comprehensiveness and size with wineries and vineyards that produce nearly three-quarters of California’s wine grapes and wine participating,” said Bobby Koch, President and CEO of Wine Institute.

In addition to the events and festivals, the Wine Institute is also releasing a book focused on the subject called Down to Earth, A seasonal Tour of Sustainable Winegrowing in California.
