what does it mean to be napa green certified?

NAPA GREEN VINEYARD

Napa Green Vineyard certification provides a pathway for growers to improve soil health, become carbon neutral to negative within six to nine years, and increase the resilience of vineyards, businesses, and our community. The Napa Green Vineyard certification standards have six core elements:
  • Social Justice, Diversity & Inclusion standards that incorporate direct input and feedback from farmworkers
  • Implementing Regenerative Ag, Soil Health & Carbon Farm Plans
  • Irrigation Assessments and Water Use efficiency
  • Forest Management for Health & Fire Resilience (where applicable)
  • Adherence to a Prohibited & Restricted Pesticides list
  • Climate-Smart Burning & Alternatives

NAPA GREEN WINERY

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. These wineries implement more than 120 sustainability and stewardship standards to:

  • Save energy and water and increase efficiency
  • Prevent waste through recycling, composting and environmentally preferable purchasing
  • Reduce GHG emissions and the winery’s carbon footprint
  • Commit to social equity
  • The whole facility is certified from production to administration to hospitality

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
• Rebekah Wineburg, Quintessa

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.
