Making Wines at This Level Means
DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT
In a time of unprecedented uncertainty and global change, something remains consistent in Wine Country—the promise of the next vintage. As the vines turn green throughout the Napa Valley and beyond, residents in and around the wine industry are surrounded by a glimpse of hope for 2020 grapes. No matter what is going on in the world around us, the vines will always be the core of wine country.
As the first winery in California to earn a LEED Gold Certification by USGBA, and the only one to hold two LEED Gold Certifications for the same property, HALL Family Wines makes vineyard sustainability the core of its business philosophy and operations.
“Sustainable farming pushes us to look at our farming operations holistically which helps us understand the impacts we are making both in the vineyard and the community at large,” shares Manager of Vineyards and Grower Relations for HALL Family Wines, Domenick Bianco. All HALL Family Wines’ Estate vineyards are California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) certified sustainable. CSWA is an environmental certification program for Napa County vineyards and wineries. In total, this includes over 450 planted acres in Napa, Sonoma, Santa Barbara, and Mendocino Counties, and include numerous certifications and accolades that position the luxury wine brands as sustainable and green leaders.
The driving force behind taking all of these sustainable efforts is Craig and Kathryn Hall’s dedication and belief that we each have a responsibility to do our best in preserving and respecting the environment. HALL Family Wines consists of three brands: HALL Wines is known for big bold Cabernet Sauvignons; WALT Wines specializes in single vineyard Pinot Noirs; and BACA Wines celebrates California Zinfandel.
HALL Family Wines strives to reduce their carbon footprint and increase sustainability not only in their vineyards, but also in their tasting rooms. The company owns five tasting rooms across wine country, including locations in Healdsburg, Sonoma, St. Helena, Rutherford, and Napa.
