Earth Day – In the News

Check out how many great stories ran this week featuring our family’s sustainability practices for Earth Day:

  • “LangeTwins uses photovoltaic solar systems at its winery for energy, low-volume drip irrigation to water crops, and encourages the vineyards’ health by preserving native grasses and trees (and even places nesting boxes for owls, birds, and bats!).”

Grapefriend Blog

  • “They devoted 20 acres of their property to habitat restoration projects. Even back in the 80’s they were planting native oaks to re-establish native habitat buffer zones between their vineyards and the local waterways.”

D Magazine’s SideDish: Dallas

  • “Based in Lodi, for five generations the Lange family has been growing sustainable wine grapes for over a decade on what was formerly the family watermelon farm. Key elements of their green efforts include the use of solar panels at the winery, water management, recycling, habitat conservation, including owl and bat boxes for naturally ridding pests in the vineyards.”
