LODI RULES Sustainable Winegrowing Program

For Farmers

I own a vineyard. How can I get it LODI RULES certified?

We would love for more sustainable farmers to join our community!  Your first step is to get a copy of our LODI RULES binder which contains instructions, farming standards, and a pesticide risk tool.  Click HERE for the PDF copy of our standards and contact stephanie@lodiwine.com to receive a binder in the mail and to get on our emailing listserve.  Applications are due to Protected Harvest, our third-party certifier, in February of each year.

I’m a LODI RULES certified sustainable farmer.  How can I spread the word about farming sustainably?

Thank you for being part of our program and for wanting to promote sustainability!  To purchase a sign for your LODI RULES certified vineyard with one of our seals, please contact Robyn at Gary’s Signs by telephone at 209-369-8592 or by email at robynm@garyssigns.com (she will verify certification prior to any sales).  If you have a website for your farm, it is a good idea to talk about how you interpret sustainability and to give examples of how you farm sustainably.  We have material created to help you spread the message too – just contact Dr. Stephanie Bolton, 209-367-4727 or stephanie@lodiwine.com.

I’m on Instagram.  What hashtag should I be using for LODI RULES?

We use #lodirules.  People love seeing photos of sustainability in action and having examples explained in the comments.  For some great examples of what to post, search Instagram for #lodirules and visit @langetwins, @cottafamilyfarms, @mohrfryranches, @boglevineyards, and @michaeldavidwinery.
