The Napa Green Vineyard program is the first sustainable winegrowing certification to focus specifically on climate action, regenerative farming, and social equity, justice and inclusion. Napa Green Vineyard certification provides a pathway for growers to improve soil health, become carbon neutral to negative within six to nine years, and increase the resilience of vineyards, businesses, and our community.
The Napa Green Vineyard certification standards have six core elements:
Napa Green has a list of 56 Prohibited Pesticides (Red Light) and 12 Restricted Pesticides (Yellow Light). Napa Green Vineyard is a stepping stone to organic farming, but does not require organic practices. The Vineyard certification includes an optional “Gold Level” tier that provides added recognition for growers who are synthetic Herbicide- and Neonicotinoid-free.
