At Clean Label Project, we believe that sometimes what’s NOT on a label is what’s most important. That’s why we created the Clean Label Project Certification Program and Awards- to provide high performing brands an opportunity to communicate their commitment to ingredient quality AND to provide consumers assurance that the product has been independently tested and certified to be low in industrial and environmental contaminants.
For the wine certification program,
Clean Label Project offers three certifications/awards:
- Clean Label Project: Purity Certification/Award
- Clean Label Project: Pesticide-Free Award
- Clean Label Project: Antioxidant Superiority Award
More details on these codes of practice can be found below:

A recent addition to the Clean Label Project Wine Certification program, Great Oregon Wine Company takes great strides to produce quality wines "as purely as possible." To learn more about GOWC, click here.
"Our wines showcase the best Oregon winemaking, highlighting the classic flavors of our special region. We use small-lot fermentation and native yeast, but never any additives, while producing only the region’s purest varietals, so the terroir can be expressed as purely as possible."
Clean Label Project believes that consumers of legal drinking age should enjoy alcoholic beverages responsibly. In 2016, 136.7 million Americans aged 12 or older reported current use of alcohol, with nearly half reporting binge use within the past 30 days1. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), alcohol consumption is associated with increased risk of a number of health consequences, including cancer, high blood pressure, and risky behavior, and certain people including people who are or may be pregnant should not drink at all2. The US Surgeon General’s office has stated that, in addition to health risks, drinking alcoholic beverages impairs the ability to drive a car or operate machinery3. Approximately 14 million Americans currently meet the criteria for an alcohol use disorder4 according to the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the total cost of treating these individuals is estimated by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at $249 billion per year5.
