The first Green Wine Summit has been scheduled for Dec. 1-2 in -- where else? -- California.
The point of the event, say its organizers, is to set the stage for the already-green wine industry to get even greener. It will feature green leadership sessions, speaker panels and a Green Showcase at the Santa Rosa event.
"From Biodynamic farming to carbon neutral wineries, the wine community has consistently been ahead of the curve when it comes to protecting our environment," said U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, D-CA.
"Not only does sustainable, eco-friendly farming help our environment, it also produces great wines. The ideas and proposals that come from this summit will be viewed as a model for the rest of the country."
