“We’re working to run a different kind of company: The kind of place we’d want to work, that makes the kind of food we’d like to eat, and that strives for a healthier, more sustainable world – the kind of world we’d like to pass on to our children.” Kit Crawford, owner. This is the philosophy behind the Clif Family line of businesses, a philosophy that I love to support. As consumers it is our duty to support businesses that choose to operate at a higher level of responsibility. The Clif Family Winery has five aspirations: “sustaining our people, sustaining our community, sustaining our planet, sustaining our brands, and sustaining our business.”
As a vegan, environmentalist and a runner I like companies that are committed to following a sustainable path. The Clif Family Winery ensures sustainability throughout its supply chain. The Clif Family Winery does this in three key areas. First by sourcing their products from local and regional organic farms which promotes biodiversity in the local community. Second by striving to achieve a neutral footprint through climate neutral energy use. Finally through meaningful partnerships with non-profits that promote family farms, conserve wildlife habitat and biodiversity. The Clif Family Winery is certified organic, Napa green certified, and generating power from non polluting sources.
Adventure and sustainability are core attributes of Clif Family Winery. Their commitment to each of these is evident in their sponsorship of the Napa Valley Marathon. To learn more about Clif Family Winery visit their website at cliffamily.com.
