Why join?

Be a pioneer in driving wine sustainability. Be part of the journey towards global sustainability standards, have the opportunity to give input into research projects, and reinforce your sustainability credibility with customers and partners, while building your network and knowledge.

The Sustainable Wine Roundtable (SWR) has rapidly become the hub for action in wine sustainability. Our independence and non-profit ethos ensure objectivity while we help the wine community to take its place on the world sustainability stage.

The SWR is member-driven and the active participation and support from representatives across all geographies and sectors is key.

We are committed to ensuring a balance of participation from producers to consumers so that we tackle key issues and standards holistically and practically.

What can you bring to the table?

General membership

Membership is open to all stakeholders in wine – from grape growers, winemakers, retailers, sommeliers, suppliers and associated businesses through to certification schemes, trade associations, and consumers.

All members will be able to participate in the development of the SWR global standard and provide input into our research projects while gaining access to information on best practices, tools and reliable partner organisations who share a vision of sustainable wine.

Members will access the many benefits of participating to save money, drive efficiency and innovate in wine sustainability through annual, scale-based dues.

Working groups

Key and emerging topics will have dedicated working groups led by the SWR members. Their role is to tackle significant sustainability issues which members have identified and come up with a plan for action. They will gain clarity, advance the discussion and agreement through research and collaboration and enable knowledge sharing among all parts of the value chain.

The most salient topics highlighted by Founding Members to start with are: communications, climate, water management, packaging, social issues and mapping & benchmarking.

SWR has a place for you – to collaborate on sustainability definitions and standards while you grow your network for practical collaboration.

Where do we start?

Our plan to Summer 2022 is outlined here
