What it means to be a B Corp

To achieve B Corp certification, companies must undergo the rigorous B Impact Assessment, which evaluates the social and environmental impact of a company. The assessment scores a company’s performance in the areas of governance, workers, community, environment and customers. Every three years, companies that achieve qualifying scores for B Corp certification must undergo subsequent assessments with increasingly higher standards to ensure continuous improvement and a deepening impact over time.

The People Behind the Craft

The winemakers behind the Luxury Brands collection are as distinct as each of their wines. Yet, they share a common thread: a near-obsession with seeking the intangible aspects of terroir in storied vineyards that span both hemispheres—then translating those site-specific characteristics through meticulous, handcrafted winemaking. Collectively, they’ve worked nearly 150 harvests. Pushing ever-forward to refine their craft and explore new terrain, our winemakers epitomize the artistry and passion of fine wine.
