Nurturing the Land with Organic & Regenerative Farming

Over 90 acres of vineyards and 10 acres dedicated to vegetables, fruit orchards, and olive groves are proudly certified organic by CCOF. This certification mandates the responsible management of lands without the use of synthetic fertilizers or harmful, persistent pesticides.

Our vineyards hold the Napa Green Vineyards certification, the pioneering Napa Valley accreditation that prioritizes climate action, regenerative farming, and social equity within sustainable winegrowing.

Guided by regenerative agricultural principles such as no-till cultivation, perennial cover crops, and thoughtfully managed sheep grazing, our practices emphasize soil vitality and carbon emission reduction.

Sustainable Production Practices

All our facilities and vineyards operate on 100% renewable electricity, sourced either through the MCE Deep Green renewables program or via on-site solar panels.

We are dedicated to incorporating organic and sustainably sourced ingredients across all our food product

Our Solar Grown Honey project amplifies the benefits of clean energy while nurturing critical pollinator habitats.

    We make our farm preserves and wine jellies in small batches in our own Organic Preserve Kitchen. The kitchen embodies our farm-to-table philosophy, ensuring that no ingredient goes to waste and every jar represents the hard work and dedication of our farm team.

    Journey to Zero Waste

    Our shipping and packaging materials are consciously chosen to be reusable, recyclable, or compostable.

    By opting for lightweight glass wine bottles and omitting foil capsules from our packaging, we substantially reduce packaging waste and carbon emissions.

    Our partnership with Napa Climate Now! transforms our tasting room and food truck into environmentally-conscious hospitality destinations, furthering waste reduction.

    We extend reimbursement to our employees for their National Park visits and entry fees for athletic events, fostering their connection with nature and well-being.
