Sustainable Farming

Farmed completely by hand, we employ a variety of sustainable farming practices in the Revana Estate Vineyard to promote soil health, encourage consistent and exceptional grapes, and ensure the longevity of our small vineyard.

Integrated pest management

Integrated pest management is a method of sustainable farming that uses an ecosystem-based strategy for long-term prevention of pests through a combination of habitat manipulation and modified viticulture practices. Blue bird boxes as well as raptor perches are positioned throughout the vineyard to encourage natural predators to inhabit our land.

Cover Crops

In between the vine rows, each block of the Revana vineyard receives a customized mix of legumes and grasses, selected to meet the specific needs of that section of our vineyard. These cover crops, such as winter rye, vetch, and fava beans, are raised until mid-May when we mow and cultivate them under the soil so they may biodegrade and replenish vital nutrients for our vines.

Napa Green Land Certified

In order to meet the standards for watershed stewardship required by Napa Green Land Certification, our vineyard farming plan includes efforts to prevent erosion, reduce potentially harmful run off, eliminate inefficient irrigation, and protect our riparian habitat.

Fish Friendly Farming (FFF) Certified

Fish populations in California are on the decline, in part due to a lack of cool, clear water. By modifying our farming practices to meet FFF’s certification criteria, we are contributing to the revitalization and preservation of wild fish populations in the Napa Valley such as Salmon and Steelhead Trout.
