CADET BROSÉ party tonight | Come taste our ROSÉ along with many other awesome Rosés | We made The Monarch Challenge rose as a way to allow wine lovers to enjoy great wine and also contribute.
Currently our goal is to totally eliminate round-up / glyphosate from our farms. This will take time and understanding but we know we can do it. This will support our farmers health, our neighbors health, our environmental health and help support our sacred pollinators 🦋🐝 who are sadly dying off at an extremely fast rate. Since the introduction of Round/up Glyphosate (1974) the Monarch butterfly population has declined by 90%. Thin about it, 90% decline in just 44 years. These herbicides along with neonics are linked to colony collapse disorder (CCD) in bees and this massive question surrounding the vast disappearance of the world’s pollinators as well… This is just a small portion of the environmental impact herbicides have managed to wreak in this short period of time. These little creatures are responsible for pollinating 30% of the world’s food and 90% of our wild plants. 90% of our plants mean its not just blueberries, broccoli, nuts and other foods but we also depend on bees for a large amount of the clean air on earth. These herbicides are also linked to human health issues like cancer, autoimmune disorders and the growing rate of autism in children. At the moment 93% of Americans have glyphosate in their bodies largely from the widely farmed and consumed corn and soy products. Needless to say we don’t want it here in Napa and Sonoma and are going to find a platform that other farming communities can follow to build a healthier global farming community. More info in bio.
