Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) So too our community’s wineries and grape growers — and a good number of them are involved in a program called Napa Green, developed and supported by the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV). It is a voluntary, rigorous program with independent third-party reviews and the need for periodic renewals, but that is not stopping our wine industry community.
