"Sustainability - the term has almost become a buzzword. But we at the wine estate Bamberger do not just want to have a say in it - we want to participate and think about sustainability. Hence being a member of Fair'n Green is a self-evident for us because this seal is all-encompassing. As comprehensive as our actions in dealing with nature, the people with whom we live and work and with profitability, risk and return. It's really simple and difficult at the same time, because it's all-encompassing." - Heiko Bamberger
