For years now, LIVE has been on the shortest of short lists whenever our trade considered questions like “What are the sustainable wine certifications with real credibility in the US?" I’ve got much respect for LIVE.

Integrity

Our certification standards are developed by experts in agroecology and integrated production. We are audited and accredited annually by the International Organization for Biological Control (IOBC), a researcher group established in 1955 to promote environmentally safe methods of pest and disease control in plant protection.

Our programs rely on the latest research from Oregon and Washington State Universities. We also have a curriculum presence in regional community colleges and a scholarship to help educate the next generation of winemakers.

LIVE vineyards and wineries are regularly visited by third-party inspectors to verify our progress and discuss the latest methods of sustainable production. Let us worry about the paperwork so that you can enjoy the wine!
