Sustainability in Action at Carneros Resort and Spa


The resort’s individual, sustainably designed cedar-clad guest cottages feature recyclable metal roofing, operable windows and cathedral ceilings to catch prevailing breezes, conserving energy. Rainwater catchment and grey water recycling are part of the resort’s water conservation program, with native and local species used in the property’s landscaping. Guests will also find the hotel’s dedication to sustainability in thoughtfully curated in-room amenities such as boxed water and compostable coffee packs, as well as rocking chairs made from recycled materials.

The resort’s dining venues feature ingredients grown in their one-acre kitchen garden, along with fresh eggs from their own chickens, and all food waste is composted for re-use onsite. A key partner in the local area’s agricultural community, Carneros Resort and Spa supports the Napa Valley Community Foundation, which donates food and produce to areas devastated by recent wildfires, as well as supporting education and diversity initiatives in the wine world, such as their “Diversity in Wine” program, which highlights wines made from vintners and winemakers of color.
