Commitment to Sustainability
At HALL Wines, we pride ourselves on being leaders in innovation, while being cognizant of our beginnings. We take this to heart in every aspect of HALL Wines from our vineyard practices and winemaking techniques to our tasting rooms and the facilities on our properties.
In the Vineyard & Winemaking Practices
At HALL, we are passionate about environmental responsibility and sustainable stewardship of our land. All of our vineyards have been certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Farming organically involves committing to two principals: ecological production and maintaining organic integrity. Additionally, production methods must conserve soil, pollute little, and promote a healthy ecosystem.
We value the land and we also value its creation, which is why we continue the tradition of hand picking all of the grapes throughout our estate vineyards. Once the grapes are brought to our winemaking facility, we process the grapes with innovative techniques to ensure the highest standard and quality of our wine.
We have been using a cutting edge digital optical sorting machine to help us achieve this. The machine uses lasers and sensors to identify which grapes meet the requirements that we set and allow only the finest fruit to reach our fermentation tanks, barrels, and finished wines.
Winery Facility & Visitor Center
The Halls acquired the historic Bergfeld winery in 2003 and have merged history with innovation with the state-of-the-art, LEED® Gold certified winery.
In 2009, HALL became the first winery in California to be distinguished as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certified fully-sustainable production facility by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Building Rating System. Since then, we also received another prestigious award of LEED® Gold Certification for modern Tasting Room & high-tech Production Facility. In addition to our recognition through LEED® certifications, we are the first vineyard and winery to install an ECOtality electric charging vehicle station.
In the Community
“Since launching HALL Wines, we have been dedicated to the preservation of the environment and bringing innovation to Napa Valley. HALL Wines is always looking for new ways to provide support and dedication to the sustainable-living movement. We continue to reinforce our commitment to the health of the land, as well as that of the greater Napa Valley ecosystem”, notes Ambassador Kathryn Hall, HALL Wines owner and vintner.
