Over the years, sustainability has become the buzzword in the wine industry. However, the term is often misused and rarely completely understood.

Writer at large and wine reviewer Christina Pickard sat down with winemaker and sustainability advocate Dr. Irina Santiago-Brown.

Brown was the first in the world to complete a PhD in Sustainability in Viticulture in 2014. She also developed the Sustainable Australia Winegrowing (SAW) system for McLaren Vale which has been adapted into the national sustainability system for Australia.

Today, Santiago-Brown is head winemaker at Inkwell Wines, an Australian winery producing organic and low-intervention wines.
