Member Resources

A list of tools and resources to assist participants through the different stages of the certification process. From considering enrollment to recommendations on how to share your certification with various audiences, these resources provide valuable supplemental information.

NAPA GREEN MATCHING GRANTS

As a part of the RISE Climate & Wine Symposium in April 2023, Napa Green partnered with three champion members (Spottswoode, Chimney Rock, and Boisset Collection) to host a series of fundraising dinners to support regional industry sustainability and climate action. In total, these dinners raised over $60,000 to provide small matching grants for growers and vintners with the greatest financial need to implement impactful sustainability and climate action projects.
  • Maximum award amount is $6,000. Grant proposals of between $1,000 and $6,000 will be accepted.
  • Successful proposals must include an applicant cost match of at least 33% of the total award amount.
  • Applicants must be certified as Napa Green Vineyard and/or Napa Green Winery, or at the Action Plan stage of the certification process.
  • Projects will be evaluated by the degree that they advance Napa Green’s Mission and make a positive impact across one or more of the Six Pillars of Sustainable Winegrowing Leadership.
  • Round I Deadline – February 9, 2024

Potential Project Examples

  • Purchasing equipment/tools to reduce/eliminate herbicide use
  • Utilizing burn services that reduce air pollution and emissions and generate a co-benefit of biochar (e.g., NapaChar, The Clean Burn Company)
  • Shifting to a lighter-weight glass (must be minimum 100g lighter than existing glass)
  • Implementing equipment/technology innovations that dramatically improve efficiency (e.g., waste heat capture for water heating)
  • *Note: We also have $300 available per Vineyard member to support soil sampling analysis.

See the full GRANT GUIDELINES HERE, and apply via this GOOGLE FORM by FEBRUARY 2, 2024.
