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.
To establish the first cross-organizational series of events, paired with sustained support and mentorship, that will not only inspire and educate, but facilitate and accelerate regional critical mass action.
This is a changemaking convening to enable the Napa County wine industry to leverage its powerful leadership platform and set a standard for sustainability and climate action that galvanizes the global wine industry.
This is a different kind of convening. There will be a series of six half-day, tightly focused events organized around the Six Pillars of Sustainable Winegrowing Leadership.
Each event will have: Two “Get Your Hands Dirty” workshop options; a Marquee Speaker; and one Strategic Panel.
AND the events are just the beginning. Dedicated facilitators and mentors will follow-up with participants to provide direct support, tools and funding strategies to transition opportunities to reality.
This convening will culminate in a Green & Blue Black-Tie Acceleration Gala that will raise money for ongoing sustainability and climate action leadership in Napa County. The Campaign will be Action-Oriented, Compelling, and, most critically, Sustained.
If not here, where? Napa County can and should be the industry leader in sustainability and climate action and leverage its powerful platform for broader change. Alone, our capacity to impact global industry challenges is relatively limited.
Collectively, unified under a common goal, we can harness our opportunities and influence to serve as a force to transform the industry.
