Chris, we first spoke about the scheme last year at the London Wine Fair and it's been really interesting to follow its development. But for those who haven't come across it before, I just thought you could start by explaining where the idea came from.CF: The scheme really started about 10 years ago when the Minister of Agriculture had some funding through the RDP scheme, and offered that to Plumpton to do some training. And we did a lot of training. We started up for what's called Wine Skills at that time. But we also agreed that we would spend some of this training on sustainability. In order to launch this project, we employed Alistair Nesbitt, who then went on to do a PhD in climate change and is now running Vinescapes, a consultancy business. So we employed him for a couple of years and what he did was review all the sustainability wine schemes that existed throughout the English speaking world, and relative schemes like LEAF and Red Tractor and so on. He went through and mapped all their guidelines, and then found commonalities.Then we gathered growers and winemakers together in England, and it was a little bit like a game of cards. We wrote all the guidelines down, and the growers had to see which ones they would reject and which ones they would accept. So, say for instance, everything on irrigation went into the negative pile, whereas those on protection of bees went on to the positive pile. And we drew up a sort of a blueprint for a sustainable system for the UK based on that. Unfortunately, just before we could launch it, there was an election, the money disappeared and at that point, we had to let Alistair go. So when I retired in June last year, I thought it was a good opportunity to sort of close that loop if you like; finish these things off. A couple of months before, I contacted some of the vineyards I knew who might be interested. And we formed what's now known as Sustainable Wines of Great Britain.VR: Okay, so how did the growers come up with the model and who decided what was going to be included in scheme?CF: We agreed to have a rather sort of, I think it's a rather original model, which is rather than having, you know, 360 guidelines or whatever, it is to have a minimum standard, that all growers and wine producers must record information pertaining to environmental conservation. I mean, that's quite important at the moment, we're only dealing with environmental conservation. We're not dealing with the wider aspects of sustainability.VR: Okay, so just before we get too carried away with ourselves, and when did the scheme launch and can you give us a brief idea of who is involved at the moment?CF: We set up the scheme in February, we sort of went out to see if anybody would like to join and we ended up with 30 members and the members represent 40% of the English vineyard area, which was rather surprising, and a production capacity of about 7 or 8 million bottles. So suddenly we knew that, you know, people were going to take this seriously. It became, it became very exciting. And I'd like to see a 90 if not 99% take up in the UK.VR: So, what are the actual main aims of the Sustainable Wines of Great Britain scheme? And for producers who want to be sustainable, who aren't part of the founding members, who perhaps might not know where to start, what sort of support is on offer at the moment?CF: So, it's straightforward. Manage the vineyard sustainably, minimise your pesticide and fertiliser inputs, protect the soils, conserve the environment, promote diversity, reduce water and non-renewable energy consumption, minimise carbon footprint. And I think that's enough. Let's just try and get that done.The main aim of Sustainable Wines of Great Britain is to disseminate information, we have monthly bulletins and now we've got monthly updates as well. So, every month we publish something on sustainability and that's free to all WineGB members, so everybody is has access and we're developing information pages as well, so everybody has access to this information. That's probably the most important thing because there's a lot of will amongst our community to be more sustainable, but very often they don't understand how to put that into action. Because they're not from farming backgrounds, because they're struggling with growing grapes already, and making wine and you know, it's because it's not it's not straightforward sometimes. So, the first thing, the most important feature, or function as a group, is to disseminate information on sustainability.VR: Okay, so I appreciate that WineGB members can access all of the information about sustainable viticulture and winemaking from the members area of the website and the bits of communication pieces that you're going to be sending out. But what then is the next stage after that? I mean, we'll touch on audit later, but in terms of being certified and joining the scheme properly, that must then have a next step to it.CF: Yes, if you want to really join the community that moves that forward and use the certification mark, you have to join the scheme. And in joining the scheme, the only payment you make is for audit. So, there's no extra repayment for any WineGB members, all they pay for is for the external auditor to review their evidence. And that means that you know they can join at any time. They don't have to join. There's no there's no obligation to join. But what we've got to make sure is we've got to make sure is that you know, when they joined, everybody starts at the same level if you like, and then as the scheme develops, and gets more refined, the level increases in here.VR: When you talk about refining everything, the way I understand the scheme, and for anybody who's part of it or has seen the rulebook, you've got a list of areas, viticultural and then winery practices. They're split into sections, whether that's looking at soil or carbon footprint, etc. And within those, there are items which are strictly prohibited. And then there are also best practice and minimum standards. I think the whole scheme looks as if it's geared around this concept of best practice. And I just wondered whether you could give a little bit more insight on that.CF: So, what we want to look at is best practice. So, say for instance, if you're if you're looking at biodiversity, you know, how do the best vineyards already measure the biodiversity and, you know, the sort of the ecosystem systems within their areas. And once we've got some feel for that, we'll be able to say, well, in our opinion, the best way to do that is to use you know, this app or this system, this method and we can agree that with Ricardo, and little by little the systems will be set up.VR: Okay, so I suppose the next thing to cover then is, if this is all about best practice and forever improving and matching and how the best vineyards and wineries in the country do things sustainably is this scheme just going to get increasingly more difficult making it harder for new members to draw in? And if we're not going down this sort of box taking approach, and it's a bit more flexible than that how can people make sure that the practice is or tailored and sort of best suited to their business?CF: The key thing is that it's a self-improvement process. It isn’t an exam. It's not you know, it's not saying okay, let's all sit this a level or Masters of Wine exam, or whatever, and, you know, and every year that will get harder, you know, it's not like that at all. What it is, is it’s a bit more like Weight Watchers. You know, some people go in and they're, you know, reasonably slim already and just want to be more fit and others have got greater challenges. And what they do is they measure themselves on a regular basis and say, right for me to improve, I need to do cycling, or take sugar out and not use sugar in my tea anymore, or something because there are different solutions for different people. But it's important for them to have a plan and then to put it into action.It's really important that this is something where a group of growers meet once a year or a couple of times a year and they say, right, how did we get on with this? You know, measuring this, is this guidelines still valid? How do we reduce our amount of diesel per hectare or whatever it is, not use as many energy inputs per hectare. They set the agendas really and set the pace of change. Because the point is not to produce an elite of people who have you know, a halo over their heads and produce this wine that’s totally different and all this sort of stuff. The point is to bring the whole industry forward. So okay, everybody, anybody can join, but you've got to work at it. You've got to sort of have a way if you want to get the certificate, you know, you've got to actively work towards the sustainable goals. My proposal because you know what we've done now we've set up the guidelines, we've set up the rulebook, those cannot be changed except at the AGM. But I think that what we will do, what I will propose next AGM which will be in January, will be to say that there is a minimum standard for those joining. And that will always stay as just being recording, you have to in order to join, you have to commit to record data that is important for you to develop your plan, carbon footprint, is a classic example. Then, three years down the line, the minimum standard will be that you will have to have plans in action. Beyond that, the auditor will want to see how those plans of action have been put in place and if not, why not.VR: So actually, now is probably quite a good time to talk about auditors. I know that you've got a company in place that we have already mentioned, they're called Ricardo. But if you could just talk through what it is that they're going to be doing with the Sustainable Wines of Great Britain scheme, Chris, that'd be really great.CF: Yes. So, it's the way in which we assure the credibility of the scheme or is by having an independent auditor, so we don't audit it ourselves. Ricardo, a global engineering consultancy company, who has an environmental arm, they do all the audits. So, the growers are audited within the first year of joining and then every three years. We're now at the stage where we've got the first batch of growers and winemakers going through audit successfully got about a dozen of them, growers and winemakers. So, we know the scheme works. We've got to carry on refining the guidelines. But that's part of the part of the process, is that every year the members review the guidelines and refine them. But also, what we've got to do is try and secure systems for gathering the information and then presenting evidence.VR: So what do growers have to record? And then what is the scheme going to do with that information?CF: So we asked the growers to record things like obviously the energy usage, water usage, biodiversity in their vineyards and so on. And that is a sort of like a minimum standard for all our members. The next step is for us to benchmark this information. And then for them to draft and put into place action plans in order to reduce their impact on the environment, improve conservation, increase biodiversity and so on. And then of course, once these plans are in place, they're expected to put them forward. We're developing a repository, sort of a website if you like, where the members can insert and hold their evidence on a sort of continuous basis if you'd like rather than just emailing it in some huge email to Ricardo. They will soon have like a chest of drawers and, one drawer will be labelled ecological monitoring, so it will be quite clear what you're expected to put in there. In goes the map, close it, and so on, so forth. So, we're going to make the systems much more accessible and simpler to use. But, you know, that's, as I said, that's really using a best practice, which has been identified by existing grows.VR: Yeah, so the more we talk, the more it just seems very much like WineGB, I guess, it's all about a little bit of collaboration and pooling knowledge and everyone is just finding the way forward, rather than providing people with this sort of one size fits all sustainability checklist, is that right?CF: That's right, you're joining a group of people on a journey, and learning from each other, and, you know, developing strategies, which could change which will become you know, I mean, there's lots of new ideas coming in all the time, particularly in information technology and remote sensing and things like that. And some will only be applicable to very large vineyards or wineries and others will be perfectly applicable to the smaller vineyard. So you can't sort of put a one size fits all sort of solution to this.VR: Okay, so can you give me an example where people have to assess what they're doing and put their own plans in place?CF: Let's take for instance the water use per bottle of wine. Okay, water shortage is going to be a huge topic in throughout the world with increasing population density and changing climate and so on. Even England is going to be short of water. And industry, especially in the South East is going to be very much restricted on the amount of water which it could use. I mean we can see that coming and water is going to become very expensive. So already they've got to think about how many litres of water they use to produce one bottle of wine. Now of course, if you think about it, you use a lot less litres of water to produce per litre of wine in a large winery than you do in a small winery, because in a large winery, you're cleaning a 10,000 litre tank, when I was working large wineries it was 30,000 litre tanks, so you know the amount of water it takes to clean a 30,000 litre tank per litre of wine is greatly reduced. And if you're if you're working on thousand litre tanks, so although we will benchmark there isn't a prescription. There's no formula. You've actually got to say, well, actually, the reason I'm using so much water is because of say, for instance, my cooling system, or I'll work on that, or my bottling, you know, could be sterilised more by steam rather than hot water or whatever it is, you know, you've got to look at your own; you’ve got to find your own solutions.VR: But it isn't a case of just going through and banning things that people would consider to be unsustainable, isn't it? So, I don't know if we look at glyphosate and herbicides, perhaps?CF: Yes. When I was, in the 70s, when I worked in vineyards in Bordeaux, 90% of the vineyards were 100% herbicided. So you’d go through Saint-Émilion and there was not a tusk of grass. There was nothing just a little bit of moss. And there was no cultivation, you didn't cultivate the soil. It was, you know, a continuous cover, if you like, of pre-emergence herbicides, mostly Simazine, that you would just top up every spring, and nothing could grow through that. Because the top surface of the soil was completely was completely poisoned, if you like, from plant's point of view. We've banned that, okay, for obvious reasons. And it's not about, we don't want to ban anything, if unless we absolutely have to, you know, what, where, you know, people are saying well, the one thing we're not keen on is the control of weeds by cultivation. Because, you know, in the alley, because, you know, that reduces the carbon storage in the soil, and cause, problems and structure, so continuous like they have in southern Europe is not a good idea in the UK, it's better to have a grass sward. I’m also yet to be convinced that from an environmental point of view, when you look not just at the soil environment but also the carbon footprint that under row cultivation is preferable to herbicide application.VR: Okay, so just moving on to I'm going to cover the details finer details of this scheme when I go and visit vineyards and wineries. But Chris, just from your point of view, what do you think is going to be the most challenging aspect both from a vine growing point of view and wine makers perspective?CF: The I'm not sure it's the most challenging but the most important is carbon footprint. Carbon footprint is the way in which we measure our contribution to climate change, and you know, never mind COVID-19, we're facing a very serious threat to life as we know it, which is, you know, our changing climate. Unfortunately, it’s

Sustainability Uncorked Trailer
Hello and welcome to Sustainability Uncorked, the podcast for UK viticulturists and winemakers. I’m your host, Victoria Rose, owner of Vine Media Relations, and in this first episode, I just wanted to run through why I’ve decided to start this podcast, who it’s for, and what listeners can expect to hear in the coming episodes of the show. [00.35] Before we get started on Sustainability Uncorked, I just thought I would tell you a bit about myself and how I got into the UK wine industry. [03:14] Why have I decided to start a podcast?[04:30] Who is the podcast for?[06:00] What will the show cover?[07:20] How to get in touch.Hello and welcome to Sustainability Uncorked, the podcast for UK grape growers and winemakers.I’m your host, Victoria Rose, owner of Vine Media Relations, and in this first episode, I just wanted to run through why I’ve decided to start this podcast, who it’s for, and what listeners can expect to hear in the coming episodes of the show. Before we get started on Sustainability Uncorked, I just thought I would tell you a bit about myself and how I got into the UK wine industry. I grew up in Cheshire, studied history and international relations at university, and moved to Kent to work at a PR agency. I didn’t even know English wine was a thing until I moved to Kent and it wasn’t until a few years later when I started working at Biddenden Vineyards did I realise just how big the English wine industry was.I remember going to my first EWP trade tasting, I’d actually only been working at the vineyard for four days, and I couldn’t believe how many producers were there.After a few years, I left the vineyard because I missed writing and was offered my dream job at a small publishing company working as features writer for one of my favourite farming magazines.I’d been there just a few months when Hush Heath got in touch to say they looking for contract grape growers and ideally wanted to hear from established fruit farmers looking to diversify, so could we do an article.I remember interviewing Richard Balfour Lynn in the temporary marquee while their new cellar door was being built and thinking how ironic that I’d left my job at a vineyard because I missed writing and there I was thinking about how much I missed the UK viticulture industry. Fortunately for me, there were so many companies keen to advertise next to the piece which I think we called venturing into viticulture, that the advertising director asked me if there might be scope for a viticulture magazine and if so would I like to edit it.Obviously, I jumped at the chance and two months later we launched Vineyard magazine. I carried on as features writer for South East Farmer while also editing Vineyard until the publishing company was sold at the start of 2020.At that point, I decided it was time for a change and so in March, just before we headed into lockdown, I started my own business Vine Media Relations. I’m now very lucky to be writing for a few excellent publications as well as looking after the PR for a small handful of clients.So what about the podcast? Well, over the last few months I’ve had countless people ask when I’m planning to start my own magazine. And to be honest it’s just not something I want to do. I do however greatly miss talking to UK growers and producers and I desperately wanted to find a way to help them share their advice and knowledge. Earlier this year I went to interview Sam Barnes about his new mechanical vine planter. While recording the interview on my phone I jokingly said, don’t worry about the recorder, it’s only so I don’t have to write down notes, it’s not like I’m doing a podcast – and that’s when then penny dropped. I’m a huge fan of podcasts because you can get loads of other stuff done while listening. This is a pretty hands-on industry and while there may only be a few moments a week or month where you might have the chance to sit down and read a magazine cover to cover, I’m hoping that you will all be able to enjoy this podcast while you’re on the go. So what am I hoping to cover and who is the podcast for?Firstly, this isn’t a consumer focused show, so while brand names and key wines will likely pop up, if you’re looking for recommendations on which English, or Welsh, wines you should be drinking, this isn’t the right podcast for you I’m afraid.This show is in fact for UK grape growers and winemakers. People used to ask me if there was enough to talk about in a monthly trade magazine about UK viticulture, and the answer was always, absolutely yes. So much so that when I sat down to schedule the podcast for the coming year I was overwhelmed with choice, and actually kept putting it off because I couldn’t decide which topic or producers I wanted to cover first. A few weeks ago however, I read that WineGB would soon be announcing which producers had passed their first audits for the Sustainable Wines of Great Britain scheme, and I thought ‘sustainability?’, yes, what a great focal point.So, in the first episode of the show I’m going to be speaking to Chris Foss, chair of the Sustainable Wines of Great Britain scheme to find out more about the accreditation and what it means to be sustainable in the UK.Then, going forward, the Sustainability Uncorked podcast will feature interviews with growers and winemakers, getting their insights into the sustainable practices which they are putting in place, the lessons they’ve learned, and the advice they have for others.While you have to be a WineGB member to sign up to the Sustainable Wines of Great Britain scheme, the Sustainability Uncorked podcast isn’t just for WineGB members and will feature any UK producers who are passionate about sustainable viticulture and winemaking.Sustainability Uncorked isn’t going to be limited to environmental aspects either. Sustainability is also about securing a financially viable future too and so machinery which can make production more efficient and cost-effective will be covered, with some sales, marketing and PR advice thrown in for good measure, as there’s little point making suitable wines if you haven’t got a sustainable market for them.So, I hope this trailer has given you a good idea of what the sustainability uncorked podcast will cover and please do hit subscribe so you don’t miss an episode. Also, if you’re passionate about sustainable viticulture or winemaking and want to be on the show, or if you have any questions for fellow producers, please do feel free to email me on email@example.com or come and find me on Instagram @VineMediaRelations. Thanks for listening, see you next time.
