Organic Standards & Sustainability

thumbprint cellars is committed to making great wine with minimal environmental impact by applying sustainable practices in all aspects of our craft.

Founder and winemaker, Scott Lindstrom-Dake, actively seeks partnerships with growers that farm their grapes to organic standards. Winemaking starts with attention to detail in the vineyards and strong relationships with our grower partners. This sustainable approach means a better overall product in your glass and better care for our land.


We strive to bring a unique approach to all that we do and when it comes to sustainability, doing our best to make sure that no detail is overlooked and seeking to be sustainably significant with every aspect of our product. Here are a few examples of how we have reduced our carbon footprint:

Sustainability Pledge

A message from winemaker/owner Scott Lindstrom-Dake.

As a gorgeous dragonfly rests on my welcoming hand I am reminded that I am a steward of the earth. These precious karmic moments never go unnoticed nor unrewarded. “Give back, not take from,” is a constant mantra of mine.   Sustainable Vineyard practices are only the ‘root’ of thumbprint’s earth-friendly philosophy. Working with sustainable grape growers are about building relationships. We work together to grow the best wines possible.

Winery practices are also streamlined for efficiency, not for short-cuts. Harvest is a crazy marathon that finishes as quickly as it starts and our passion for winemaking keeps us in balance during the frenzy. We do this because our ‘sustainable passion’ provides our thumbprint family the great tasting wines they desire.
