Despite COVID-19 Napa Green has been as busy as ever with new winery certifications and re-certifications. The core steps of Napa Green Winery certification and re-certification include completing/updating the certification standards checklist, receiving the “Integrated Resource Audit” (one-stop energy, water and waste assessment), developing the Action Plan for continuing improvement, and completing the third-party verification review. The only significant barrier of COVID-19 has been scheduling the final walkthrough with the independent third-party certifier. So the following wineries have either completed this final step or are in queue for this final review.
Judd’s Hill Winery
Viader Vineyards & Winery
Cuvaison Estate Wines
Alpha Omega Winery
Frank Family Vineyards
Turnbull Wine Cellars
We have another eight new wineries actively working on certification, and 12 wineries in the process of re-certification. Congratulations and thanks to all of the wineries committing and doubling down on Napa Green Winery resource efficiency, climate action and social equity.

It is no exaggeration to say we couldn’t do what we do without our partners!
