Our Dedication to Sustainability

We believe extraordinary wines are the product of vineyard stewardship, sustainability, and a relationship with the local community.

Crafted with sustainability in mind including new ECO glass bottles, FSC certified cork, and 100% recycled materials for the labels.

ECO Wines Bottled in a USDA certified organic facility.

Our ECO glass bottles are among the lightest in the industry (397g) and result in a 13% reduction in carbon emissions.

Our labels and other printed materials are on 100% post-consumer waste materials stock.

Our corks and labels are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, guaranteeing sustainable practices at the source of origin.

Our corks are also certified by the Rainforest Alliance, an international group committed to conserving biodiversity through sustainability.

Our grapes are certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture (ECO tier).

Snoqualmie has been committed to sustainable and organic winemaking practices since 1983. Beginning in the vineyard and carrying through to the winery and our packaging, we believe that investing in these practices is the best way to highlight all the purity of fruit that Mother Nature intended.

Naturally Northwest — named after the mountain pass that serves as the gateway to Washington wine country, Snoqualmie wines reflect the balance and natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. As part of our longtime commitment to maintaining the natural quality of the Northwest, we take pride in using farming practices that will support and maintain the long-term health of the soil, vines and surrounding landscapes, ensuring they will continue to provide for future generations.
