  • Save energy and increase energy efficiency
  • Conserve water and increase water use efficiency
  • Prevent waste through recycling, composting and environmentally preferable purchasing
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the winery’s carbon footprint
  • Care for employees, build engagement around sustainability and be good neighbors
  • The whole facility is certified from production to hospitality
  • Leverage sustainability certification to differentiate your brand with guests and customers and increase market access

To use the Napa Green Certified Winery mark in general communications and marketing materials you must represent a certified Napa Green Winery.

To use the new Napa Green Certified Winery mark on your LABELS you must submit an application validating that the wine is made from 85% or more Napa Valley AVA grapes and produced 100% in the Applicant’s certified production facilities. Wine that was processed at another facility, not certified Napa Green, would not qualify to use this mark.

As a certified vintner, you may authorize third-party producers which produce wine at your certified production facility to apply to Napa Green for permission to use the NGCW Certification Mark on and in association with that wine.

Napa Green is one of only four sustainable winegrowing programs nationwide offering the opportunity for comprehensive soil-to-bottle certification in both the vineyard and winery. 40% of all of the certified sustainable wineries in CA are in Napa County.
