Taking Care of the Planet

In 2007, we installed a 63-Kw photovoltaic solar system. The system, at Shenandoah Vineyards, was sized to supply a majority of the electrical needs of the winery, office and vineyards. The lighting system was retrofitted with the latest, most efficient technology available. Our heating and cooling systems are the most efficient available.

Along with the solar system, we recycle our cardboard, glass and metal waste. The white paper waste from our office (about 10 cubic feet per week) is shredded and added to our grape compost to aid in its breakdown.
In 2014, Shenandoah Vineyards Winery installed a Solar Powered - Level 2 - 32A (7.7kw) 240V Electric Vehicle Charging Station. The USA-built Clipper Creek HCS-40 continues our committment to sustainability and green energy. Guests can now charge their electric vehicle from our Solar Panels at no cost as they wine taste and picnic.
