Large Wine Maker

Napa Valley, CA

Following the 2006 grape harvest, O2Compost provided assistance with a pilot project, in an effort to demonstrate the benefits of utilizing composted grape pomace in the vineyards instead of land applying the raw waste. The challenge with grape pomace composting is that it is an annual (not an on-going) operation and it occurs at the same time as the grape harvest, an extremely busy season for all those involved in the wine making process. The wineries that compost their by-products must have the site prepared well in advance and be willing to dedicate the necessary labor to properly manage the pomace as it is generated. With this level of commitment, agricultural sustainability can be achieved.
