The Green Vine Wine Insider App rewards you for exploring eco-friendly wineries on the West Coast that focus on sustainable, organic and biodynamic practices. Collect points for visiting tasting rooms, and redeem them for special wine club offers, discounts on your favorite wines, and other goods & services at Reward Locations in wine country.
The Green Vine Wine Insider is a companion app to the book, The Green Vine: A Guide to West Coast Sustainable, Biodynamic and Organic Wines (Mountaineers Books), by Shannon Borg. The GVW Insider helps wine lovers find wines and wineries that value the environment and are actively engaged in sustainable winemaking practices that conserve energy and water resources, help build soil, and lower herbicide and pesticide runoff that contaminates water resources. Many of these wineries are certified through several different programs, such as Salmon-Safe, Demeter Certified Biodynamic, the National Organic Program, Vinea: the Winemaker's Trust and more. Some wine labels bear the logos from these organizations on their labels, helping consumers to find certified wines.
The Green Vine Wine Insider app allows users to collect points when they physically visit a place listed in the app. Once they collect enough points, users can redeem those points at special Rewards locations, which are wineries listed in the app. Each Rewards location offers a different reward, such as special wine club offers, discounts on wine, free or discounted wine tastings, discounts on books, glassware and other goods and services.
