San Rafael, Calif.—The Glass Packaging Institute and its members proudly boast that glass is “endlessly recyclable,” and thus eco-positive. How effective this is in practice depends upon local recycling programs that deliver cullet (re-usable glass) to glass plants.

Pourquoi le cas du « vigneron condamné pour refus de polluer » fait débat
Grande Passione's insight:

Excellent Recap - "L'affaire Giboulot" a eu le mérite de mettre en lumière le choix difficile des vignerons face à une maladie. Il serait dommage de la réduire à un débat pour/contre les produits phyto ou pour/contre le principe de précaution. Le vrai sujet, celui dont on parlera encore dans quelques années, reste bien la lutte contre la flavescence dorée, l'investissement de la recherche en la matière et la qualité des moyens à mettre en œuvre."

Economic Impact of Cold-Climate Grapes Hits $401 Million

 
Source: Vineyards and Wineries in Minnesota: A Status and economic Contribution Report by Brigid Tuck and William Gartner

St. Paul, Minn.—Cold-climate grapegrowing is based primarily on four varietals—Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, La Crescent and Marquette—that are products of the grape-breeding program at the University of Minnesota. The first of the four, Frontenac, was released in 1996, and the last, Marquette, was introduced 10 years later, in 2006. Because these grapes can grow in places where winter temperatures regularly drop below -20°F, a new farm winery industry developed in northern states where growers cannot reliably grow vinifera or even French hybrid grapes. A new study, based on data from 2011, shows that the economic impact of the cold-climate wine industry on the United States economy has reached $401 million.
