Sustainable Winery in Napa | Hagafen Cellars | Silverado Trail
Hagafen Cellars is a little hidden gem located on the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley, California. I visited this winery on Christmas Day and is one of two wineries open on this holiday. Hagafen Cellars is the cutest winery that is Napa Green certified and pet friendly. Hagafen Cellars is reducing its carbon foot print by using solar power, sustainable farming, and the winery is made with recycled products.
The winemaker and owner, Ernie Weir, said the following:
“I interfere as little as possible with the soil in order to create a balance that minimizes the chemical and erosion impact. As a sustainable Green Winery, we respect the time-honored values of conservation and land stewardship while still embracing innovative practices. Once harvest is complete, I undertake the second part of my job : winemaking. Each year this presents an interesting challenge, as each year the growing season and harvest are unique and different. I never seek to change what Nature has provided. My goal is to showcase the best that our land has produced.”
Nestled in the heart of Napa with surrounding mountain hills, is Hagafen winery with beautiful patio gardens. The family owned winery (since 1979) is decorated with recycled items with creative decorative ideas. The winery has many places to sit and large size games are available for guests to enjoy.
The winery is pet friendly and tasting will be waived with a purchase of two bottles. Tastings are priced at $20, $30 and $40 and by appointment only!
“Passion, soul, and enjoyment—without all three, you do not have a fine wine.” - Ernie Weir
This winery did suffer minimal structural damage during the Fires in October of 2017. The loss in the vineyards were minimal as well.
Hagafen Winery is also located close to the Silverado Resort, Del Dotto Caves, William Hill Winery and of course many others!
