Another winery goes LEED – nice to see them working sustainably

Star Community Newspapers

HALL Wines, the premier 21st century vineyard and winery owned by Craig and Kathryn Hall, announces it has received the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification for its Napa Valley St. Helena winery, becoming the first winery in California to be distinguished as a Gold certified facility by the U.S. Green Building Councils LEED Green Building Rating System.

The HALL St. Helena LEED certified winery is one of most advanced wineries in California, with state-of-the-art facilities designed for ultra-premium wine production. LEED is an internationally recognized certification system that measures a building or communitys performance across all environmental metrics including energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

The certification of HALL Wines not only marks a momentous occasion for the wine industry of California, but demonstrates how all industries can choose to be solvers of our collective environmental challenges, said Rick Fedrizzi, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. The HALL Wines project efficiently uses natural resources, makes an immediate positive impact on our planet and as a business leader, can expect to reap financial benefits over the lifecycle of the winery.

Owners and Vintners of HALL Wines, Craig and Kathryn Hall, and President Mike Reynolds, made it their long-term mission to become the leader in earth-friendly California winegrowing, resulting in the design of their new St. Helena facility in accordance with the U.S. Green Building Councils LEED rating system.

    My absolute favorite wine is only available in Florida and Georgia. It is from San Sebastian Vinyards, St Augustine, FL. The White table wine and Vitners Red is fabulous! They are the best seller in Florida for this reason!
