Located in St. Helena, the facility is the first LEED Gold certified winery in California. A variety of eco-conscious features led to the gold certification including the use of radiant floors, 42,000 square feet of solar panels, locally sourced or recycled building materials, drought-tolerant plants, and other water conserving features.
The Napa Valley winery is hosting LEED tours on a daily basis through the end of August. Tours begin at 11 a.m. and you can make a reservation by calling (707) 967-2626.
