With the building of its gravity-flow winery in September of 2007, Torii Mor emphasized its commitment to environmental preservation. Our commitment to sustainability has awarded us two special achievements: LIVE Certification and LEED Gold Certification. In addition we have continued our promise and become Salmon Safe and Oregon Certified Sustainable.
LIVE, Inc. (Low Input Viticulture & Enology) Established in 1997, Low Input Viticulture & Enology, Inc. (LIVE, Inc.) is a program providing vineyards and wineries official recognition for sustainable agricultural practices that are modeled after international standards. LIVE’s certification process, which balances the needs of the worker, consumer and environmental health along with economic sustainability, is the result of an ongoing dialog between academics, growers and evvironmentalists. Certification is awarded after three years of successful participation in the program. Torii Mor’s estate vineyard and winery were certified LIVE in 2009.
