Tournesol vineyards are located in the Coombsville region of Napa Valley. The geographical location and terrain create a unique microclimate within the Napa Valley. The 12 acres of vineyards lie on a gently sloping bench 300 feet above the valley floor. Tournesol vines enjoy a perfect exposure to the sun with cool breezes from San Francisco Bay providing ideal growing temperatures. The volcanic composition of this soil produces muscular Bordeaux varietal wines that express its distinctive terroir.
The Napa Green program is supported by a wide variety of groups including the Sierra Club, the Audubon Society, and the University of California. The Napa Valley Vintners, along with Fish Friendly Farming, the Napa Valley Grapegrowers, the Napa County Farm Bureau and others developed the Napa Green program. Learn more about the program at napagreen.org.
Tournesol is certified under the Napa Green Certified Land Program. Tournesol has created and implemented a customized farm plan with measured results that addressed all aspects of its property, vineyard land as well as non-farmed land, including practicing soil conservation, water conservation, stable drainage, riparian corridor enhancement, fisheries and wildlife habitat enhancement and long-term improvement and sustainability.
Certification - certification is granted by the Napa County Agricultural Commissioners Office of Pesticide Regulation, the Regional Water Quality Control board, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the National Marine Fisheries Service.
