We are dedicated to making remarkable wines with sustainable methods, that pair best with good food and good company. Our business, our wines and the work of our Cakebread extended family all demonstrate this daily commitment to a healthy environment and a thriving community. Napa Valley is ‘the place we live and love’ and Cakebread Cellars will continue to champion sustainability and stewardship for the health and wellbeing of the land and surrounding community.
The Cakebread Cellars story begins with a piece of land and a family passionate about wine that brought Cakebread Cellars to life in 1973. Their commitment to sustainability encompasses all parts of the organization from the vineyards to the cellar including business operations and people practices. Sustainable farming, growing and winemaking techniques further sustain the health of vineyards and the balanced interaction with surrounding wildlife, promoting diverse and balanced ecosystems. Cakebread Cellars employs bundled renewable electricity, captures excess heat generated from microturbines, and has installed EV charging stations. It’s not just the big initiatives or investments that define Cakebread Cellars; it’s the day-to-day details and decisions that create a culture of conservation.
