Napa Green Reschedules Inaugural Rosé & Bubbles Spring Soiree to Saturday, June 13*

Napa, Calif.—For more than a decade, non-profit Napa Green has been helping growers and wineries become leaders in sustainable winegrowing through third-party certification of rigorous standards. Now Napa Green has announced its inaugural celebration, ‘Rosé & Bubbles Spring Soirée,’ hosted by LEED Platinum Certified Bardessono Hotel & Spa and Lucy Restaurant & Bar in Yountville, California. Due to the recent Public Health Emergency, the original April date has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 13, 2020 from 2:30pm to 5:00pm.

Vintner Hugh Davies of Schramsberg and Davies Vineyards said, “As a Napa Green Winery since 2009, we are excited to participate in the Napa Green Rosé and Bubbles Spring Soiree event. The program continues to drive the importance of sustainable practices for Napa Valley’s vineyards and wineries, and we are proud to be one of the many area wineries committed to protecting this special place we call home.”

Guests are encouraged to dress in their spring best while sipping and savoring rosé and sparkling wine from more than a dozen Napa Green wineries, along with small bites and appetizers from Lucy Restaurant. “At Bardessono, sustainable design and conscientious attention to detail enhance the guest experience. This is exactly the connection we are making with Napa Green wines – that caring for nature elevates quality and luxury,” says Anna Brittain, Napa Green Executive Director. “This will be the first of many events spotlighting the exceptional wines made at Napa Green wineries. On Sunday, the following day, we encourage guests to visit their favorite of the participating wineries in person.”

“Jessup Cellars is excited to introduce our new ‘Mon Chéri’ rosé at the celebration,” said Tracy McArdle, General Manager of Jessup Cellars and Handwritten Wines. “This will be the sixth wine in our ‘Art of the Blend’ series, a cuvée of Carignan and Grenache.”

Other wineries participating in this partnership event include Cuvaison Estate Wines, Chimney Rock, Tres Sabores, ZD Wines, St. Supéry Estate, Etude Wines, Domaine Carneros, Gamble Family Vineyards, Provenance Vineyards, Castello Di Amorosa, Rutherford Hill Winery, and Sterling Vineyards. These wineries are among 90 Napa Green Certified wineries, representing 40% of all of the certified sustainable wineries in the state of California.

Tickets are $85 per person and available on CellarPass.com. Napa Green and winery members, along with guests of Bardessono Hotel & Spa are eligible for a $20 discount code upon request.

About Napa Green

Napa Green is a comprehensive sustainability certification program for vineyards and wineries in the Napa Valley.

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

Join us for a special roundtable workshop with award-winning journalist Elin McCoy, global wine critic for Bloomberg News and US editor for the podcast The Wine Conversation, with listeners in 95 countries. 

Elin will sit down with a small group of Napa Green members (max 25 guests) and share her insights on the types of stories and pitches most likely to engage the media. In particular, she’ll focus on stories related to sustainable winegrowing, climate action, and social equity. 

Elin will speak and answer questions for about an hour. Then we’ll break into small groups to develop a story pitch, and come back together to present and get Elin’s feedback and input. This is a rare opportunity to get ideas and inspiration from a leading wine journalist. Register at the link in our profile.

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.
