Sustainable Wine Roundtable (SWR) is a unique coalition – the only global, independent roundtable to include the whole value chain.
SWR catalyses and drives collective action and knowledge sharing. Whether you are a producer, distributor, retailer, a logistics partner or a researcher, take your place at the table.
Working together, we are developing a global sustainability reference standard.
SWR is also working with members across the wine industry to develop collaborative action and tools on areas such as vineyard chemistry, labour standards, packaging and bottle weight and low carbon logistics.
Our VISION is of a world where high quality wine is produced, traded and consumed in ways that conserve and regenerate the natural environment, respect human rights and foster quality and inclusion; and generate prosperity, pride and passion for excellence.
Our MISSION is to convene the global wine industry to facilitate knowledge sharing, enable practical solutions and inspire sustainability action.
SWR Founding Members
As a global organisation supporting the wine and tourism industries, we believe that sustainability is an essential factor in the responsible development of these sectors; we believe that wine tourism is a great tool to raise awareness of sustainability issues and we are delighted to be a founding member of the Sustainable Wine Roundtable to lay the groundwork for a definition of what wine destinations should commit to respond to climate, environmental and social issues of sustainability

“At Whole Foods Market, we want customers to feel good about what they’re putting in their baskets. Responsible sourcing and environmental stewardship have been key parts of who we are and how we've done business since we first opened our doors in 1980. To this day, we’re always looking for ways to do more for our planet because we believe it’s worth it for our customers, team members and suppliers, and critical to our mission of Nourishing People and the Planet.
