Bunker Hill Vineyard & Winery
A "GREEN", Environmentally Responsible, Winery
Greetings from Bunker Hill Vineyard and Winery!
Green Business Certification
Bunker Hill Vineyard and Winery is a “GREEN”, Environmentally Responsible Vineyard and Winery! Everything that we do, we do in a way that protects and preserves our environment.
Over 14 years ago, before our 1st. vine was planted, we designed an irrigation system that would enable us to irrigate our grapes without pumping any water out of the Earth. We capture water in a ‘cistern’ and move this water to the vines using the energy of ‘today’s’ sun (see photo).
In the course of creating our fabulous wines, there’s a need for ‘distilled water’. Unlike most wineries today, we create all our distilled water and sanitize it, on site, using the energy of today’s sun (see photo).
Every single wine bottle that we use is a ‘recycled’ wine bottle that was locally sourced from restaurants and individuals (see photo). This enables us to reduce our carbon footprint by 60%!
There are many, many more things that we do to keep our footprint small.
Based upon these examples and the many others not listed, we were able to become certified, at the highest level…“Master Level” (see photo)…by the “Manatee County Chamber of Commerce”! Our “Green Certification” raised the bar to the highest “GREEN” level ever obtained.
It is our hope, that our example of protecting and preserving the environment, will become the “GREEN” benchmark for current and future businesses.
When a business moves in a “GREEN” direction, we ‘All’ win!
We encourage your questions, comments and suggestions.
Thank You…Larry and Lenora
