Solar-Powered Wine

From Treehugger, news of several California wineries making the switch to solar power. Between state grants and the inevitable savings on power, these vinters are finding that they can recoup the rather large initial outlays in as few as eight years. One of these wineries, Shafer Vinyards, is also making the move to organic agriculture along with their solar venture, so you can raise a glass of one of their vintages and know that your wine isn't just red or white -- it's also green.
