Organically Farmed & Environmentally Responsible

CADE Estate Winery

We are proud to be Napa valley's first 100% LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified estate winery.
At CADE Estate, we believe that winemaking should honor the land, both aesthetically and ecologically. Our philosophy of making luxury wine in harmony with the environment begins in the soil of our estate vineyard where we maintain a painstaking program of natural cultivation - a rewarding program that made us the first organically farmed LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified estate winery in the Napa Valley.
LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. At CADE, this includes the use of:
  • Recycled steel
  • Concrete mixed with fly ash,
    a coal by-product that reduces the use of cement
  • Naturally insulated caves and fermentation room; additional insulation from recycled materials, such as blue jeans
  • Individually jacketed fermentation tanks
  • Renewable resources such as cork flooring
  • Structural glass and solar panels to minimize the use of electricity
  • Grey water for irrigation
  • Bike racks and electrical car outlets to encourage green transportation

Odette Estate Winery

We founded Odette Estate Winery with a guiding philosophy of environmental responsibility and a commitment to preserving our special spot in the Stags Leap District for generations to come.
Organic farming is a natural decision for us, and it's just as important that our winery construction and operation reflect these priorities. To this end, we hired architect Juan Carlos Fernandez to design our LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified estate winery. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. At Odette Estate, this includes the use of:

  • Recycled shipping containers serve as the winemaking office and lab
  • Recycled marine plywood flooring
  • Concrete mixed with fly ash,
    a coal by-product that reduces the use of cement
  • Perforated aluminum panels for sun protection and natural air flow reducing the need for cooling
  • 8500 square feet of planted living roof
  • Naturally insulated caves
  • Individually jacketed fermentation tanks
  • Polycarbonate paneling and solar panels minimize the use of electricity
  • Rain water capture for irrigation
  • Electrical car outlets to encourage green transportation
