As you visit and taste your way through the Napa Valley, keep in mind that you are in one of the most environmentally progressive wine regions in the world.
Many of the Napa Valley's most iconic wineries pride themselves not only on having exceptional winemakers and grape growers, but on being environmental 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 extraordinary wines.
A glass of Napa Green wine is a reflection of the people, energy, climate and ecology of the Napa Valley. From the bluebirds and ladybugs that help keep a vineyard in balance to the employee that leads a winery's recycling efforts, each glass of Napa Green wine represents the intention and commitment to land stewardship and consistent quality that the Napa Valley is known for.
In a valley approximately 30 miles long and five miles wide, there are now nearly 500 wineries. The majority of them are small and family-owned and roughly one-quarter are certified Napa Green. Of the more than 45,000 acres/18,200 hectares planted to vineyard in Napa Valley, more than 40% are certified Napa Green Land. Napa Valley’s vintners are committed to stewarding the land and its resources so the next generation can continue the winemaking tradition.
Use the filters to find Napa Green wineries where you can have a picnic, toast with sparkling wine, bring your dog or take in an art exhibit. To protect the agricultural nature of Napa Valley and to promote sustainable wine tourism, Napa County requires many wineries to be by appointment only. Please call ahead to schedule a time.
