What is GWC ?


Wine Waste


Solid winery waste: grape stalks, grape pomace and grape seeds.

Raw material, wine waste is easy collect but also easy to get moldy.

Our wine waste was provided by a beautiful winery:
Diamond Mountain Vineyard in North Napa

The Growing Market and Waste






Wine is consumed globally as an alcoholic beverage with an increasing demand that has reached 6.4 billion gallons.


5 tons solid waste

is produced per hectare per year during the process of cultivation and harvesting of grapes.





For every 2

bottles of wine produced,  there is 

bottle of waste
