We recycle 100% of the winery’s waste water by collecting and dispersing it onto one of the Abbey’s fallow fields. The winery also recycles the water used to hydrate barrels, up to four times, by reusing the same barrel water to hydrate the next set of barrels. The use of ozonated water and gas also helps to lower the amount of water used, by providing good sanitation without the use of large amounts of water. There are many other small contributors that help us lower our water usage such as low flow nozzles and toilets, as well as recycling our sanitizing water used in the winery. And of course dry farming and deficit irrigation practices also helps us better manage our water resources.
