Napa Green Certification
Napa Green is the wine industry's most comprehesive "best practices" in land-use and wine production.
In 2010, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars received “Napa Green Certified Land” certification for our three estate vineyards – FAY, S.L.V. and Danika Ranch – and “Napa Green Certified Winery” for the winery. Napa Green is the wine industry’s most comprehensive “best practices” in land-use and wine production. This voluntary program developed by the Napa Valley Vintners is open to all Napa County vintners and grape growers and focuses on building environmentally sound, sustainable practices that meet and exceed more than twenty local, state and federal land or production “best practices” and is certified by an independent third party. Napa County vintners participate in programs focused on winery operations and/or farming practices tailored specifically to each property to meet and exceed environmental compliance and continue to protect and enhance the ecological quality of the region. The Napa Green certification acknowledges Stag's Leap Wine Cellars as a conscientious Napa Valley producer, using best management practices to minimize water and energy use, and to maximize programs to reduce, reuse and recycle resources and materials.
