Visit the Wineries

The Napa Valley is one of the world’s most distinctive wine regions, federally designated as its own American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 1981. Within the region there are 16 sub-appellations. Each has its own distinct soils, terrain, microclimates and other nuances that characterize the wines produced from that region.

Snag your Napa Green Tasting Passport and be welcomed by 17 of the Napa Valley’s most celebrated wineries, or pick and choose from 14 Napa Green Itineraries, curated for you by local experts.

In order to protect the agricultural nature of Napa Valley and to promote sustainable wine tourism, Napa County requires many wineries to be by appointment only. Appointment-only wineries are indicated below with the icon depicted. Please call ahead to schedule a time for your visit.

FROM SOIL TO BOTTLE

A COMPREHENSIVE SUSTAINABILITY CERTIFICATION PROGRAM FOR NAPA VALLEY WINERIES AND VINEYARDS

As you visit and taste your way through the Napa Valley, enjoy knowing you have chosen one of the most sustainable wine destinations in the world.
Many of the Napa Valley’s most iconic wineries pride themselves not only on making exceptional wines, but on being sustainability leaders. From soil to bottle, Napa Green Certified vintners make a long series of thoughtful decisions that steward the land and conserve resources – all while producing the celebrated wines that have made the Napa Valley a renowned name worldwide.

Stewardship from Soil to Bottle

1

All Napa County vineyards and wineries are situated within the Napa River watershed, teaming with life, including threatened Chinook salmon and steelhead trout, which need clear, cool waters to spawn.

2

The leaders and stewards recognized as Napa Green Land have worked with regional certification programs to evaluate their whole property, not just the vineyard, and develop a custom Farm Plan focused on preventing erosion and keeping soils where we want them – in the vineyards.

3

Vineyard managers also evaluate any pesticides used in the vineyard (generally minimal) and work to ensure they are using low- or no-risk inputs. And they do a comprehensive assessment of irrigation and frost protection practices to identify any opportunities to improve water efficiency and system performance.

4

In the winery a “Green Team” works to integrate sustainability throughout the whole facility – from the crush pad where grapes arrive from the vineyard, into the tank and barrel cellars and caves where wines ferment and age, to the staff offices and the tasting room where guests have the chance to swirl, sip and savor the finished wines.

5

Winery sustainability is as much or more about awareness and monitoring of activities like water used for tank and barrel cleaning, as it is about installing the most efficient lighting and other resource saving technologies.
A glass of Napa Green wine is a reflection of the people, energy, climate and ecology of the Napa Valley. From the cover crops that keep the fertile soils under the vines to the winery “Green Teams” that drive energy and water savings and prevent waste, each glass of Napa Green wine represents the intention and commitment to making exceptionally high quality wines using rigorous land stewardship and sustainable winemaking standards.
