In celebration of Earth Day, we thought it would be fitting to list the wineries in the Napa Valley and Los Carneros that are recognized as leaders in utilizing “Green Activities” in their vineyards and winery facilities. The term “Green” can mean many things but in the case of this blog post we use the term “Green” to include the following activities:
â€¢ Organic farming (no use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers)
â€¢ Use of solar power
â€¢ Use of bio diesel fuels (fuels derived from vegetable oil)
â€¢ Water conservation
â€¢ Reduction of waste
The following is a list of Napa wineries that we consider to be exemplary in their attempt to reduce their carbon footprint and preserve the environment for future generations.
â€¢ Araujo Estate
â€¢ Ehlers Estate
â€¢ Frogs Leap Winery
â€¢ Grgich Hills Cellars
â€¢ Honig Vineyards & Winery
â€¢ Joseph Phelps
â€¢ Long Meadow Ranch
â€¢ MacRostie Winery & Vineyards
â€¢ Madonna Estate
â€¢ Robert Sinskey Vineyards
â€¢ Staglin Family Vineyard
This list was created from our own experiences visiting wineries in the Napa Valley plus information provided to us by the Wine Institute. This is by no means a comprehensive list. Please comment if you think you are a winery or know of a winery that should be on this list. There is a public out there that wants to know who the “Green” wineries are.
In the future we will post additional wineries that do their part to sustain the planet.
