Arbor Day is just a natural holiday for us to celebrate, because it relates so perfectly to our commitment to sustainability in the vineyards and to leave a better world for next generations.
This marks the 6th year since we started our partnership with Arbor Day Foundation. During the month of April, every case of Candoni Organic Wine sold in the U.S. will result in the planting of a tree within the Mississippi River Valley, whose watershed touches 33 states.
A FAMILY “GARDENING” SESSION TO CELEBRATE TOGETHER
Every year, the Arbor Day Foundation, invites people to find their own way to celebrate Arbor Day. This year, we are planning to have a family “gardening” session at our Tenuta Polvaro estate to plant a tree all together. At first, I thought that planting a tree on our own would require too much effort. But after reading the Five key steps for planting trees from our friend Joe Gardener I feel confident that we are going to make it! If you want to do the same, check his blog Grow a Greener World to learn more.
Here’s the recipe and how to prepare it:
- ¾ c. Buongiorno
- ¼ c. Organic orange juice
- 1 organic orange
Chop up the oranges into 1/4-inch thick wedges and remove any large seeds. Fill the glass with ice and pour the wine. Top with organic orange juice, stir gently and garnish with a slice of orange.
This refreshing low-alcoholic cocktail is good for the planet and the drinker, so what better way to end a beautiful day spent out in nature?
