Winery Checklist Instructions
Welcome to the LIVE Winery Certification Checklist. Completion of this document is required for successful participation in LIVE. To complete the Checklist, first click on the Chapter that you would like to start with. These can be found on the far left column of the page. You can start anywhere you like. You will then be given a list of Control Points in the center column that correspond to that Chapter. Click on a Control Point to reveal the list of Items you will need to complete to achieve credit for that Control Point. Use the drop-down list next to each Item to complete your answer. Your answers will be saved automatically as you enter them. You can answer as many or as few Items at a time as you wish. You can always come back and work on the Checklist later.
The color scheme of this Checklist has a very specific purpose:
- Red Control Points are 100% Required. To achieve credit for a Red Control Point, you must comply with 100% of Red Items that correspond to that Control Point.
- Yellow Control Points are 90% Required. To achieve credit for a Yellow Control Point, you must comply with 50% of the Yellow Items that correspond to that Control Point.
- Green Items are considered "Bonus Points." To pass the Checklist, you must comply with a minimum of 50% of the AVAILABLE (Not Total) Green Items. In sections with more than 3 Green Items, you may only get credit for a maximum of 3 AVAILABLE. This is to prevent members from concentrating too heavily on any one given area of improvement. Furthermore, you will notice that the option N/A is disabled for Green Items. You must answer Yes/No for these. The AVAILABLE amount of Green Items is calculated for you and presented in the summary for each control point, as well as the overall summary.
You may check your progress at any time by clicking on the Chapter in question. You may also check your overall progress by clicking on the appropriate link in the center column.
You will also notice an icon next to each Item. If you click on this icon, a pop-up window will appear with Explanations, Compliance Instructions, an area for Winery Manager Notes, as well as any documents or reference links you will need to achieve a Yes answer for that item. Please take advantage of this information!
