For many years Graham O’Rourke has been a committed member of SWBC, helping to shape the certification program, and a diligent proponent of sustainable viticulture practices. On April 1, as part of our on-site auditor training Graham and Lyndsay O’Rourke (viticulturist and winemaker, respectively) walked us through their sustainability practices; with documentation, interviews and tours (of the vineyard and winery). While the process to certify can be a rigorous one, the O’Rourkes have been working toward and waiting patiently for the certification program to launch for years. It’s a pleasure to welcome the O’Rourkes and Tightrope Winery as our first official member. Well done, raise your glass (of SWBC Certified wine)!
