(Napa Valley, CA, October 27, 2020) — Napa is in orange, so why not go green? The skies have cleared over the Napa Valley, and the State of California has shifted Napa County to moderate Orange tier status. This tier designation means wineries and restaurants can now offer indoor and outdoor service at 25-50% occupancy levels. Do you want to support the community in the wake of the fires? Get your Napa Green Passport and Travel Package, combining unique offers at 15 Napa Green Certified sustainable wineries with green lodging and outdoor experience discounts.
“While our community is recovering from recent hillside fires, the beauty of the Napa Valley remains,” says Anna Brittain, Executive Director of Napa Green. “Grapes are fermenting, cooler weather has arrived, and leaves are changing color. Our Napa Green wineries want to welcome guests back for the holidays. Each purchase of a Napa Green Passport supports businesses that are committed to conservation and climate action.”
The Napa Green Passport and Travel Package unlocks over $600 in value and can easily pay for itself in one day. There are 15 different wine tasting offers, including half-off tours and tastings at Tres Sabores and Chimney Rock or a complimentary tasting (with gourmet nibbles) at Handwritten Wines.
Passport holders also receive a 10% discount at LEED-Platinum certified Bardessono Hotel & Spa, which was voted California’s top 5-star hotel in 2018. In Napa, the same deal is on offer at The Westin Verasa (a certified Green Business), situated by the Napa River, Oxbow Market, and the Napa Valley Wine Train. Guests can get outdoors and kayak or paddleboard through the Carneros sparkling wine region with Napa Valley Paddle. Those who like to bike can ride the Vine Trail with Napa Valley Bike Tours. For hiking with amazing valley views, take a tour with Active Wine Adventures. All of these experiences are offering Napa Green discounts.
There is something else that sets the Napa Green Tasting Passport apart. Napa Green is setting aside “3% for the Community.” Three percent of Passport profits will go to UpValley Family Centers, which provides strengths-based, culturally relevant services, including emergency assistance. UpValley Family Centers has stood on the county’s COVID-19 and fire response frontlines, providing essential aid and other resources to low-income families impacted by recent crises.
The Napa Green Tasting Passport is $99 per person, or $84 with the purchase of two or more passports, and can be purchased on CellarPass. The Passport purchase unlocks the suite of Napa Green Travel Package discounts. Passports are good through December 31, 2020. Be sure to make advanced reservations and bring your classiest mask. Get your Napa Green Passport and Travel Package and support conscientious businesses as they recover.
