Celebrate Earth Day 2011 With Benziger Family Winery
31 March, 2011
Sonoma, CA– Committed to environmental sustainability year-round through Biodynamic® and sustainable farming practices, eco-friendly packaging, and carbon-neutrality, Benziger Family Winery celebrates Earth Day this year by giving back to their local environment and vineyard worker community. Nationally, consumers can celebrate Earth Day with Benziger at key retailers by sampling “green flights” of wine.
Benziger Family Winery family members, staff and friends will roll up their sleeves and spend a few hours beautifying nearby Jack London State Park by picking up trash and tending to the garden. Last year, a group of dedicated volunteers worked together to lay a brand new gravel path in the park.
In addition to expressing appreciation for the environment, Benziger Family Winery will also dedicate 100% of net tasting room profits on Earth Day to the local farm worker community for the fifth annual year through Sonoma Valley’s La Luz Center/Vineyard Worker services, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing the Sonoma Valley farm worker community assistance with housing, employment, health and social services, legal support, transportation and support groups. “On Earth Day, we want to give back and pay tribute for those who tend to the Earth everyday,” said Benziger.
Benziger enthusiasts nationally can celebrate Earth Day with Benziger Family Winery through a sampling program entitled “Every day is Earth Day with Benziger,” which is being sponsored by the family’s distributor, Kobrand Corporation. Tastings will occur at key retailers and on-premise accounts across the country.
