Congratulations are in order:
The wineries achieved this milestone as a result of having completed and audited their first complete GHG inventory across Scopes 1, 2, and 3. As part of IWCA’s commitment to rigor in the GHG inventory process, their inventories are third-party verified and aligned with the World Resources Institute Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the ISO-14064 process.
As IWCA Silver Members, the wineries are committed to becoming Net Zero by 2050 across Scopes 1, 2, and 3—continuing to regularly measure their emissions and consistently reducing those emissions compared to their baseline inventory.
IWCA is now 20 Silver Members and 5 Gold Members strong, in addition to our Applicant wineries! Join us in congratulating Famille Perrin and Voyager Estate and learn more about them below.
From the legendary Château de Beaucastel to the partnership with Brad Pitt at Miraval, the Perrin family has experienced over a century of success. Famille Perrin is today the largest owner of vineyards in the best terroirs of the southern Rhone Valley in France. Pioneers of organic farming since 1953 and biodynamics since 1970, the strength of Famille Perrin is knowing how to cultivate everyone’s talents to support their vineyards but always under the auspices of common values: absolute respect for the terroir and the soils, biodynamics as a philosophy of life, pursuit for precision, balance and elegance.
"Winegrowers for five generations, we do our very best to care for our environment and the land of our ancestors. We are also fully aware of the impacts of climate change which affect our business and for which we are responsible for future generations. We wanted to join IWCA to show our commitment and to take action."
Established in 1978, Voyager Estate is a family-owned vineyard and winery in Margaret River; a unique cape region nestled in the south-western corner of Australia. Their wines are all grown and meticulously crafted on their property, where they’re showcased in their cellar door and restaurant. Their vineyards are 100% organically farmed, with wines transitioning to full certification by 2023. Sustainability has been at their core for over 20 years, with a focus on building soil carbon, ecosystem support, land management, water efficiency, and renewable energy.
"At Voyager Estate, we have long advocated for and applied environment-positive strategies and practices across our whole business. The IWCA mission has rallied us around the greater shared challenge of substantial and real emissions reductions and inspired us to set our sights beyond our earlier aspirations. We are excited to be on this journey with other leading producers, to decarbonise the global wine industry."
IWCA actively invites wineries interested in our mission to contact us. Membership is open to any wine company involved in the production process from winegrowing to bottling that believes in taking strategic action to accelerate innovative climate solutions.
