You actually can be ecologically responsible while drinking well … if you select Napa Green certified wines. Created in 2004 by the Napa Valley Vintners association and more than 20 industry, community, government and nonprofit partners, this third-party program has been certifying the Napa wineries and vineyards that make environmental conservation a top priority.

To date, more than 75 wineries and 61,000 acres of land (including 17,000 acres of vineyards) have been certified, with thousands more awaiting official certification. Napa Green certified wineries produce more than 4.5 million cases of wine each year, and last year prevented 3.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.

However romantic, winemaking is still an industrial agricultural process. The responsible practices of Napa Green certified wineries and vineyards help ensure that the riches of the Napa Valley will be around for wine enthusiasts to enjoy now, and many vintages into the future. To find all participating wineries, visit NapaGreen.org.
