THRIVES

TRANSFORMATION, HEALTH & RESILIENCE INITIATIVES IN VITICULTURE & ENOLOGY SYMPOSIUM

Taking Action

Accelerating Leadership

Building Resilience

What is Napa THRIVES?

The climate crisis is no longer imminent. It is here. Coming together as sustainable winegrowing leaders is no longer optional, it is imperative.

Napa growers and vintners must play an increasingly active role in building social equity, conserving natural resources, reducing and drawing down GHG emissions and creating more resilient vineyards, businesses and communities.

Our region and wines capture global attention, meaning our leadership can be an outsized force for change. This is a changemaking convening to enable the Napa County wine industry to leverage its powerful platform and set a standard for sustainability and climate action that galvanizes the global wine industry.
