Two California heavyweights – Ridge and Cakebread Cellars – have joined the International Wineries for Climate Action initiative as applicant members.

Founded in 2019 by Spain’s Familia Torres and California’s Jackson Family Wines, IWCA is dedicated to decarbonising the global wine industry.

“Climate change is real. Ridge has suffered through the impact of extended drought and wildfires. In collaboration with our partners at IWCA we look forward to providing leadership and innovation in the critical process of decarbonising the wine industry,” said Ridge’s president, David Amadia.

Cakebread Cellars in the Napa Valley has also been welcomed into the IWCA fold.

“Over the next few months, we will be working collaboratively across departments and with the support of our Green Team to complete our first greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory.

“This inventory will assist us in calculating and verifying Cakebread Cellars’ emissions and will serve as our annual guide to continued improvement in sustainability and climate change,” a spokesperson for the estate said.
