Celebrate Summer Solstice at Napa’s Solar Wineries

June 7, 2009 by  

Ten of Napa Valley’s wineries will be celebrating the summer solstice with their second annual Solarbration wine tasting event.


All of the wineries involved – Flora Springs Winery & Vineyards, Honig Vineyard & Winery, Larkmead Vineyards, Longmeadow Ranch, Oakville Ranch Vineyards, Peju Winery, Saintsbury, Silverado Vineyards, Trefethen Family Vineyards,  and ZD Wines – are at the forefront of solar energy and sustainable farming practices in the valley.

The actual event will take place at Bardessono Resort, a 62 room hotel, spa, and restaurant that is considered one of the greenest luxury hotels in America.

The ten wineries, along with Bardessono, utilize a combined 1,387 kw of solar (1, 830, 000 kWh annually) on their properties that will spare the emission of nearly 28, 767, 600 pounds of CO2 over the next 30 years – equivalent to the carbon captured by 462.4 acres of forest – while saving nearly $220,000 annually in electricity costs.

Proceeds from the Solarbration event will be donated to the Land Trust of Napa County.

Saturday, June 20th, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
