What Defines Napa Green

From Napa Valley's unique Mediterranean climate to its stunning landscapes and vistas, the region is known for its dedication to land stewardship and world-class wines. The Napa Green program elevates this commitment by protecting the land and conserving valuable resources - in both the vineyard and the winery.

  • Beyond Compliance - Through participation in the Napa Green program, vineyards and wineries are certified by meeting and exceeding comprehensive and stringent environmental regulations that will preserve Napa Valley’s land and resources for generations to come.
  • Preservation and Conservation - Napa Green Land practices protect soils, reduce harmful inputs and restore natural habitats. Napa Green Winery participants monitor energy, water and waste and conserve resources. Employees are engaged every step of the way.
  • Third-Party Certification - Custom farm plans and winery action plans for continuing improvement are verified by independent, third-party certifiers to ensure thorough evaluation.
  • Workforce and Community - Napa Green emphasizes social equity and sustainability, caring for workers, engaging with neighbors and giving back to the community.

The 2020 Initiative

Building upon a rich history of stewardship and conservation, the Napa Valley Vintners trade association helped launch Napa Green in the early 2000s. In 2015, the organization set a goal to have every eligible member in the Napa Green program (vineyard or winery) by the end of 2020.
