Napa Green Invites Visitors Back To the Napa Valley with a Green Travel Package for the Holidays

(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.

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

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.

Join us for The Future of Water Workshop, to explore our water future, with highlights including a keynote from Peter Gleick, one of the world’s leading water experts (all guests will receive a copy of Peter’s most recent book, The Three Ages of Water) and Mimi Casteel, not only a viticulturist and winemaker, but also a forest ecologist with a vision for water resiliency.

Wine grape quality is closely tied to the right amount of water, at the right time. One of the most critical agricultural concerns with our changing climate, and more frequent & intense weather extremes, is precipitation and water availability. We’ve swung from historic drought to atmospheric rivers. Our community has huge swaths of unmanaged, unhealthy forests full of non-natives and overrun by firs, amplifying fire risk and undermining one of the most critical systems for groundwater recharge.

The good news is opportunities abound to optimize irrigation efficiency, and implement regenerative practices that improve soil health, water infiltration, and retention. A watershed coalition has also formed in Napa County to pilot and model creek & forest restoration for localized water resiliency and climate cooling. 

Come learn more on Thursday, May 23rd at 9:00am at @silveroakcellars.
