Make it easier.
On March 24th, Ontario’s wine industry gathered at Peninsula Ridge Estates to talk about one thing: making sustainable winemaking a reality in Ontario. Wineries, government, technology providers, and industry associations, all committed to a common cause.
The occasion marked the launch of Water & Wine, BLOOM’s practical, online platform for winery’s water needs. Based on a two-year study of Ontario’s wine region, Water & Wine is a platform built to show wineries the path to water efficiency: that it is attainable, and worth it.
“I wish this material was available sooner. If I had this information I could have saved a lot of time and money when we started monitoring water use.”
