Zero Waste Sustainability

Vine to Value

From harvest to superfood: health boosting, great taste, and supporting the planet - all in one

Our Challenge

Untapped Potential

Grape marc, the grape pulp, skin and seed after pressing, is the largest underutilized by-product from winemaking, with 1.1 million tons generated in California alone.

Our Solution

Upcycling Chardonnay Marc

By upcycling the Coastal Chardonnay Marc into ingredients used in foods and dietary supplements, WellVine™ is enabling more sustainable wine production.

The Result

Full-Cycle Sustainability

WellVine™ has achieved “full-cycle sustainability” through careful vineyard management and innovations like our WellVine™ Coastal Chardonnay Marc.
