New Zealand’s Squealing Pig has released its latest vintage Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir with carboNZero certification. 

The internationally recognised carboNZero program was established in 2001 by Landcare Research New Zealand Limited, one of New Zealand's leading Crown Research Institutes, and is based on over a decade of research on climate change, greenhouse gas measurement and carbon monitoring. 

To achieve certification, an organisation must undergo an independent verification to ensure they meet strict international standards that ensure the ongoing credibility of the program and brand. 

The carboNZero program is fast becoming the New Zealand wine company carbon certification of choice, and as other New Zealand wineries move certified brands into export markets the logo will become better known and associated with New Zealand wines. 

The 2013 Squealing Pig Pinot Gris, with an RRP of $21.99, and the 2012 Squealing Pig Pinot Noir (pictured), with an RRP of $25.99, are the first wines from the Squealing Pig portfolio to wear the carboNZero certification on its label and are available in Australian now.
