We're Excited & Proud to be Napa Green Certified!

Whitehall Lane Winery is proud to announce that we are Napa Green certified! Napa Green is a comprehensive sustainability certification program for vineyards and wineries in the Napa Valley. Soil to bottle stewardship includes protecting and restoring the Napa River watershed; saving energy and water; reducing waste and carbon footprint, and being conscientious employers and good neighbors. Independent third-party certification of farms and winemaking facilities makes Napa Green one of the most rigorous sustainability accreditations the wine industry offers.

Here’s what our team has to say about our Napa Green certification.

“At Whitehall Lane, we created a “Green Team” that worked enthusiastically to meet our goal to become a Napa Green Certified Winery. Our team regularly monitors recycling as well as energy and water usage efficiency to ensure that our sustainable practices are maintained. Our team also continues to research new innovative practices to continue to improve our carbon footprint as responsible landowners in Napa Valley.” – Katie Leonardini, VP of Operations

“Whitehall Lane Winery is proud to be a Napa Green Certified Winery. Our vision of becoming a responsibly sustainable company with energy, water, and green practices has a future bearing on our consumers, as well as our long-term presence in Napa Valley. Our consumers would be happy to know we are putting our best foot forward on producing an environmentally-conscientious product. For Napa Valley, it is our duty to preserve and protect for the future generations of our family-owned winery.” – Jason Moulton, Winemaker

What defines Napa Green?

From Napa Valley’s unique Mediterranean climate to its stunning landscapes and vistas, the region is known for its dedication to land stewardship and world-class wines. The Napa Green program elevates this commitment by protecting the land and conserving valuable resources – in both the vineyard and the winery. 

  • Beyond Compliance – Through participation in the Napa Green program, vineyards and wineries are certified by meeting and exceeding comprehensive and stringent environmental regulations that will preserve Napa Valley’s land and resources for generations to come.
  • Preservation and Conservation – Napa Green Winery participants monitor energy, water and waste and conserve resources.
  • Third-Party Certification – Custom winery action plans for continuing improvement are verified by independent, third-party certifiers to ensure thorough evaluation.
  • Workforce & Community – Napa Green emphasizes social equity and sustainability, caring for workers, engaging with neighbors and giving back to the community.

What does Napa Green mean for Whitehall Lane Winery?

Whitehall Lane Winery and Vineyards is a local family-owned and operated winery in the Rutherford Appellation of Napa Valley, dedicated to growing and making premium, world-class wines while providing excellent hospitality with Napa Green certified and sustainable practices.

In short, this certification means that our commitment to energy, water, and green practices has been recognized by a third-party. We are among the few wineries that have committed themselves to preserve and protect the Napa Valley for future generations.

For more information about Napa Green and a map of all wineries that have been certified, check out NapaGreen.org.

Making the commitment to third party certification takes time and effort, but it is worth it to demonstrate our commitment to the community and to protect our watershed, our land and the air we breathe.​
