Obsessed with sustainability in everything we do
Winderlea Vineyard & Winery | StoryWinelight
Established in 2005 by winegrowers Bill Sweat and Donna Morris, Winderlea is located on the original Dundee Hills Vineyard, a 20 acre property they acquired that was originally planted in the 1970s. Adding to their estate vineyard on the red hills bench, Winderlea secured the Meredith Mitchell Vineyard, located in McMinnville, as an estate holding through a long-term lease.
As lovers of wines that speak to the characteristics of each vineyard site, their winemaking is focused and minimalist. Winderlea is obsessed with producing its wines and running its business as sustainably as possible. They are one of only 60 Demeter Biodynamic® Certified Vineyards in the United States and were one of the first five wineries globally to achieve B Corp Certification, demonstrating their commitment to sustainable practices in all aspects of the business.
Renewable energy comes from resources which are naturally replenished like sunlight, wind, rain, and geothermal heat. Wineries earn this tag by using renewable energy to help power their operations.
We highlight women led businesses on our site because most winery owners and winemakers are men. To earn this tag the winery must be majority women owned or have a female winemaker.
Wineries with this tag are a certified B Corporation. B Corps are a different company structure that balances purpose with profit by being ethical, communal, honest, sustainable, and responsible.
Sustainable practices help reduce the impact of farming, manufacturing, and other industries. To earn this tag, wineries or the vineyards they source from are certified by third party organizations.
Family owned and operated businesses are an important part of the US economy. To earn this tag, a winery has two or more family members involved, and the majority ownership lies within the family.
Starting your own business is hard, especially in the wine industry where there are so many uncontrolled variables. Wineries earn this tag if the current owners and operators are also the founders.
