A person who can produce an excellent bottle of Pinot Noir is usually well tuned to the ecology of their vineyard. Installing solar power and water systems on their winery buildings is a natural progression, and a reflection of their beliefs and standards of environmental stewardship. Many wine enthusiasts share these interests and convictions, which leads to the added benefit of marketing potential of these often visible solar power facilities. Wineries have set an example of how similar businesses can reflect their values through solar installations and environmental leadership.
