Sustainable Wines

Cakebread Cellars
For nearly 50 years, this family-owned winery has led the way when it comes to organic farming, diligent water and energy conservation and extensive recycling operations to improve the health of the soil. Cakebread was only the second California winery to achieve the honorable Napa Green certification in 2008. Most recently, in 2021, Cakebread became the newest applicant member of the International Wineries for Climate Action, furthering its sustainability initiatives and working to reduce carbon emissions across the winery. 

Far Niente
This award-winning winery boasts the ground-breaking Floatovoltaic system, which is the world’s first floating, grid-connected solar installation. The result? Far Niente is a net-zero user of electricity that annually produces more energy than it consumes. 

Frog’s Leap
The first Napa winery to farm organically in 1988, Frog’s Leap began fully dry-farming in 1989 – saving enough water to fill 40 Olympic swimming pools annually – and converted to solar power in 2004. In 2005, it became the first Napa winery to have a LEED Silver certified building as well. 

J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines
Currently, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines operates the largest solar tracking array in the North American wine industry at its Paso Robles estate vineyard. In addition, J. Lohr has installed a 920.7 KW flat mount solar power system at its Monterey estate vineyard that powers nearly 100 percent of energy needs at the location. With over 20 wines bearing the Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing seal, J. Lohr was awarded the 2020 Green Medal Leader Award and has achieved “Certified Sustainable” status for its vineyards each year since the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance first began certification in 2010.
