The Wine Company to become Minnesota’s First Solar Powered Wine Distributor

Committed to sustainable initiatives at every turn, The Wine Company is going solar! As an importer with a strong focus on sustainable, organic, and biodynamic wines, it comes as no surprise that many wineries in this wish-list of a portfolio are solar powered as well. Ever conscious of the ecological impact of each decision at every turn, The Wine Company decided it was time. Why wouldn’t you? In an age of global warming and the climatic upheaval in response, migrating to solar power is the right thing to do -not only for its common sense but the dollars and sense of it.

Thanks to an enormous, exposed roof regularly bathing in daylight, The Wine Company has plenty of room to spare for two massive solar arrays totaling 188 solar panels. Altogether this solar garden is capable of 150,000 kilowatt hours -an annual output providing enough electricity to power the average Minnesota household for nearly seventeen years!

Our Earth receives more energy from the sun every hour than all the people on the planet consume every year. Sunlight provides a boundless renewable energy -not only to ripen all the grapes in all the vineyards sourced by The Wine Company but also to power their temperature controlled warehouse, offices, and entertaining areas that host every sort of educational trade tasting. Now Minnesota retailers and restaurateurs, and wine lovers at large can rest assured that The Wine Company’s commitment to the environment doesn’t end in the bottle itself but proves a raison d’etre and a shining example of what is to come.
