They are designed to help wineries and growers, respectively, develop sustainable practices, according to a news release.

Winerywise acts as a learning and educational tool to help wineries assess and develop sustainable business practices.

Development of Winerywise was funded by a specialty crop block grant of nearly $130,000.
