Sustainability

We are committed to producing the highest quality estate wines, without compromise. Through our commitment to sustainable winery and farming operations, we are protecting our land and environment for future generations.

Certified Napa Green

Napa Green is a comprehensive environmental certification program for vineyards and wineries in the Napa Valley. St. Supéry Estate Vineyards and Winery achieved Napa Green Land certification in 2008 and Napa Green Winery designation in 2012. The program represents a soil-to-bottle approach to environmental stewardship and winemaking, integrating holistic management practices at every step of the process. Independent, third-party certification of farms and winemaking facilities makes Napa Green one of the most comprehensive environmental accreditations in the wine industry, requiring continual improvement for renewal.

Napa Green Winery

Our rooftop solar array collects energy from the sun, offsetting roughly 80% of our energy bill. We recycle all winemaking, bottling and winery materials and adhere to a strict purchasing policy for all items used at the winery and in the vineyard. This includes but, is certainly not limited to purchasing glass that is made from recycled goods, ordering paper products that exceed 50% post-consumer waste and the investment in new technology, like high pressure-flow washers, that reduced our water use by half. Focused on sustainable efforts in all facets, we planted a culinary garden in 2012 to support our farm-to-table commitment. We incorporate fresh produce from our culinary and espalier gardens and fruit from our Dollarhide Ranch at the winery in our food and wine pairings and bring this experience to our neighbors through selling to local restaurants and at seasonal Bay Area farmers’ markets.

Recipes from the Estate

With over an acre of culinary gardens and 1200 heirloom fruit trees, our Estate Chef, has a bounty of produce to create delicious and thoughtfully paired recipes to complement the St. Supéry Estate wines. It is with great pleasure that we share our Chef’s favorite recipes for every season, course and wine with you. Bon Appétit.

Solar Power Generation

At the winery, our rooftop solar array collects energy from the sun, offsetting roughly 80% of our energy bill.
