B the Change - REX HILL / A to Z achieves B Corp Certification

At A to Z Wineworks, we take sustainability seriously. So seriously in fact that, for us, sustainability not only means how we farm our vineyards and recycle at the winery but, among other things, how we treat our employees, how we look at our chemical, water and carbon foot prints and how we relate to our community.  In short, we look at the whole of our business and ask what can we do not only to create a profitable business and a great place to work, but how do decisions we make affect the vitality of our triple bottom line: our social, environmental and financial performance measures.  

For years we had certified parts of our business with various certification systems and agencies (LIVE, organic, Demeter, OCSW…etcetera).  In researching B Corp certification, we realized that of all the certification systems we work with, B Corp best reflects how we manage our company, our company culture and our values.  Furthermore, we discovered that some B Corp certified companies were among those that we admired not only for their financial success, but for the fully sustainable way they were run, even after a sale.  

It became only natural to seek B Corp certification. As we progressed through the certification process, it became quickly evident that B Corp and A to Z Wineworks were a perfect fit. We are very happy to be part of the family of B Corps certified companies.  It feels great to be recognized for the work we have done to retain our values as we experienced exponential growth.

Bloom 2014

Just like bud burst, bloom was also early, occurring in the last week in May. At that rate we should start harvesting the first week of September with fruit from Southern Oregon and then moving into the Willamette Valley by the middle of the month.

 

As we welcome the start to another growing season we are also excited to welcome our new Viticulture Technician, Karen Peterson.  She trained at Oregon State University and has great experience working with the researchers at the Oregon Wine Research Institute. Not shy of hard work she cut her teeth working in the vineyards of Domaine Drouhin Oregon doing everything from field work, tractor operations to technical work. She brings a good work ethic, technical and practical knowledge and we’re excited to have her on board to help continue our understanding of growing grapes here in Oregon.

"Is Chardonnay Oregon's Next Big Thing?" by Forbes Magazine

A group of devout Chardonnay lovers were brought together by Katie Kelly Bell of Forbes Magazine to taste some Oregon Chardonnays. They had never tasted Oregon Chardonnay before and there was "unanimous surprise at the level of brightness and acidity in the wines." Our 2011 REX HILL Dijon Clone Chardonnay was wone of the fan favorites along with Chardonnays from Willamette Valley Vineyards, Stoller Family Estate, Anam Cara, Lange Estate Winery & Ponzi Vineyards.

2011 REX HILL Dijon Clone Chardonnay, $38- Winemaker Michael Davies aims to 'protect the wine's minerality' and 'assure it's compatibility with food.' Davies also loves his wine with sushi.

"Oregon Finds Finesse with Chardonnay" - Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

"The interplay of vivid flavors against a razor-sharp, mouthwatering balance has emerged as the signature style of Oregon Chardonnay." - Harvey Steiman

When Chardonnay was first planted in Oregon vineyards, it had trouble ripening due to the cooler weather of the Willamette Valley. The arrival of the Dijon Clones in the 1990s, a cooler climate Chardonnay clone, turned things around and Oregon has begun to produce wines that can compete with Chardonnays from both California and France.

Our 2010 REX HILL Willamette Valley Chardonnay received 90 points from Wine Spectator and was featured in an article by Harvey Steiman that discusses the evolution of Oregon Chardonnay. Steiman believes that the 2011 vintage produced some "stunning Chradonnays." We agree!
