Farm certifications confirm characteristics of winegrape production. Most certifications are verified by an independent third party. Growers participate in certification programs for several reasons including: Many wine customers and wineries demand production practices meet certain standards, certifications can increase winegrape prices, and certifications help differentiate a vineyard's grapes.
