Parducci's Tim Thornhill Cites Everglades As Inspiration For Winery's Wetland Wastewater Treatment

In a recent article on California winery wastewater, Derrick Schneider of interviews Parducci's Tim Thornhill to learn how the winery recycles 100 percent of the water that comes through it. "It's like I'm making water," he says, "which is better than making money because I can't always buy water even if I have the money."

Thornhill says he "took inspiration from one of the greatest filters in the world...the Everglades. It's like a labyrinth; water comes in on one end and leaves out the other, and along the way it goes through channels with grasses and organisms that do the actual filtering."

Schneider notes that the new wetlands have "transformed what used to be a typically ugly pond into a community park and wildlife magnet," and quotes Thornhill as saying, "It's the No. 1 attraction on the tour."
