Dave Matthews' Wine Boasts Full Flavors And Sustainable Practices

By Desirée Kaplan

Unfortunately, wine production is one area that often contributes to carbon emissions and resource consumption. With sustainability in mind, award winning musician Dave Matthews decided to take a different route when he created his winery. The Dreaming Tree Wines began as an effort to produce an eco-friendly wine that was not only affordable for wine lovers, but that also gave back to the environment. 

Matthews first caught the winemaking bug when he purchased land in Virginia and considered farming it. As a wine lover, he soon found himself tinkering with the idea of creating an eco-conscious wine and sought out a partner. Matthews linked up with New Zealander and wine creator, Sean McKenzie. Together, the musician and vintner created a range of California wines that were both produced and packaged sustainably.
