Nathan Cardella, Winemaker. Cardella Winery

Description

SWCS CA/NV Chapter annual tour. Nathan Cardella, Winemaker. Cardella Winery sits at “ground-zero” of the land subsidence problem in the San Joaquin Valley. Tour participants and Mr. Cardella engaged in sobering, and informative, conversation about the issues facing farmers in the San Joaquin Valley. The winery, like most farms in the Valley this year, are 100% reliant on groundwater; much of which is “fossil water,” or, water that cannot never be replenished by recharge again. Mr. Cardella stated that farmers are as equally concerned, if not more so, than other members of the public on the impact they are having on the groundwater resource. If they do not use this resource, their businesses, and, their way of life, will cease to exist. June 18, 2014. Photo by Phil Hogan
