Trefethen

Start the day tucked away amidst valley floor vineyards at Trefethen Family Vineyards, one of Napa Valley’s earliest wineries. Start with their Dry Riesling, a limited production variety in the Napa Valley. Opt for the reserve tasting and enjoy the unique red blend wine Dragon’s Tooth. In addition to environmental stewardship, Trefethen Family Vineyards is also committed to being responsible neighbors and enlightened employers, including employing their vineyard workers year round, providing living wages and comprehensive benefits.

Your next stop is Yountville, where you’ll bring a little celebration into your life with sparkling wine at Domaine Chandon. Choose from several different wine flights and soak in the sun on their terrace. This winery is focused on conserving water and energy in the vineyard and the winery, and they recycle all waste materials generated during production.

Cliff Lede

Just northeast of downtown Yountville in the Stags Leap District you’ll find Cliff Lede Vineyards. The breathtaking estate is comprised of Twin Peaks Vineyard, as well as the prized 20-acre Poetry Vineyard. Grab a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, and stroll through the back arbor to experience The Dark Side of the Moon (all of the vineyard blocks have rock music-themed names) or check out Backstage for a reserve tasting and exhibit of rare photos and art of some of the greatest rock musicians of all time. Cliff Lede Vineyards uses cover crops to control erosion and enhance soil fertility, and they’ve left more than 50 acres of land unplanted as natural wildlife habitat. The winery benefits from solar panels that provide renewable energy and all of the winery process water is recycled and used to irrigate the landscaping.

Please note: In order to protect the health and safety of all guests as we continue to be vigilant about the spread of COVID-19 all wineries will be reservation-only for the time being. It is essential to make appointments in advance and also review each winery’s posted policies and procedures before you arrive. Don’t forget your classiest wine tasting masks for entering and exiting the winery.

One of the main resistances to phasing out glyphosate is increased labor and equipment costs. However, the costs of herbicides and fertilizers have risen dramatically, so increased labor demands can be offset by reduced supply chain purchases. 

In addition, leaders like Grgich Hills Estate have shown that regenerative organic farming can be cost-effective. According to an analysis by Brotemarkle Davis & Co. LLP accounting firm, the average annual per acre cost of vineyard management in the Napa Valley is $14,800, with $3,800 in depreciation. At Grgich, they spend $11,000 per acre, with only $1,300 in depreciation due to the longer life of their vineyards. 

Learn from regional leaders about the practical costs, benefits, and ROI of herbicide-free, organic, and regenerative vineyard management.

Confirmed Speakers:
• Ivo Jeramaz, Grgich Hills
• Phil Coturri, Enterprise Vineyard Management & Winery Sixteen 600
• Brad Kurtz, Gloria Ferrer
• Brenae Royal, St. Supery

Join us for a special roundtable workshop with award-winning journalist Elin McCoy, global wine critic for Bloomberg News and US editor for the podcast The Wine Conversation, with listeners in 95 countries. 

Elin will sit down with a small group of Napa Green members (max 25 guests) and share her insights on the types of stories and pitches most likely to engage the media. In particular, she’ll focus on stories related to sustainable winegrowing, climate action, and social equity. 

Elin will speak and answer questions for about an hour. Then we’ll break into small groups to develop a story pitch, and come back together to present and get Elin’s feedback and input. This is a rare opportunity to get ideas and inspiration from a leading wine journalist. Register at the link in our profile.

One of the most critical agricultural concerns with our changing climate, and more frequent & intense weather extremes, is precipitation and water availability. The good news is opportunities abound to optimize irrigation efficiency, and implement regenerative practices that improve soil health, water infiltration, and retention. 

Join us for The Future of Water, with highlights including a keynote from Peter Gleick, one of the world’s leading water experts, and Mimi Casteel, not only a viticulturist and winemaker, but also a forest ecologist with a vision for water resiliency.
