The vineyards are currently managed by Warren Boyle, the grandson of the founder, who farms 1,000 acres under the “Certified Green” principles (Previously known as “Lodi Rules”), a sustainable farming program designed to lead to improvements in environmental health of the surrounding ecosystem. This approach encompasses practices in all apsects of viticulture, water management, management of the farm ecosystem, pest management, and even in human resources. Certification is awarded to an individual vineyard based on an annual audit by a third party.
