Triumph at the Drinks Business Green Awards 2013

Spain’s Miguel Torres and California’s Jackson Family Wines were triumphant at the Green Awards ceremony in London.

Organised and conducted by the drinks business, this year’s Green Awards were announced yesterday at The Ivy restaurant during a drinks event for winners, leading industry figures and press.

Among the awards presented were Green Company of the Year to Jackson Family Wines and Best Green Launch to Miguel Torres for Habitat wine.

In particular, California featured prominently, picking up awards for its generic sustainability initiatives as well as its leading companies Jackson Family Wines and Gallo.

However, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and Portugal were also recognised for their environmental initiatives in this year’s awards.

Overall, it was apparent from both the quantity and quality of entries this year – the fourth year that db has held the Green Awards – that the green agenda plays both a widespread and important role in the wine industry of 2013.

Jackson Family Wines won the Drinks Business green award for 'Green Company of the Year' whilst Miguel Torres Spain were runners up.
