As part of a holiday package from Lodi Wine, I received a bottle of LangeTwins Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon 2012. I love the motto on the bottle “To Be Generational, We Must Be Sustainable”; sustainability is such an important aspect for the wine world to adopt moving forward. Five generations of the family grew grapes and in 2006 they opened the winery to showcase their fruit. Going beyond basic sustainability practices, the family are not only concerned with the health of the vineyard but also its surrounding natural environment. Kudos to them and, since you can taste the quality in the bottle, good for all of us in more ways than one.
