The next step on the road to creating a fully sustainable winery for The Peter Mondavi Family is the installation of a 1.2 megawatt solar energy system. Blue Sky Utility, a developer of comprehensive solar-powered renewable energy systems, is working with Bright Power, Inc. to design and install the system, which is scheduled to come online in December. Once completed, the system will cover more than half of all of the St. Helena estate winery’s energy needs.
The solar project is just one step in the greening of Napa Valley’s oldest winery, and the continuing efforts to steward the land while protecting and preserving Charles Krug’s important historical legacy are earning new respect for a family long identified with California wine.
