Become Napa Green Certified

Your commitment to environmental stewardship and climate action is important to wine lovers, industry buyers and media as they evaluate wine brands in a competitive market. It is also essential to our community. We encourage you to become a part of the Napa Green community and be recognized for your responsible, conscientious business practices.

We want to emphasize that no one is starting from the ground floor. The majority of vineyards and wineries are already implementing 60-70% of these sustainability best practices. Your team needs to be committed to moving further up the ladder and continually improving with time. Napa Green staff is here to help.

Napa Green WINERY

Making an exceptional wine requires stewardship and attention to detail. 

The same is true of achieving Napa Green Winery certification.

Making the commitment to third party certification takes time and effort, but it is worth it to demonstrate our commitment to the community and to protect our watershed, our land and the air we breathe.​
