Mentioned in the Press

A family-owned and operated business, Captain Vineyards strives to produce the best grapes and most exceptional wines.  As the first, and only, local green vineyard and winery, we are committed to continuous innovation, community education, and environmental consciousness.

We take pride in every step of our production process: energy conservation, dry farming, zero waste, and reduced carbon footprint. Our goal is to grow with our grapes and show that everyone's favorite beverage does not need to cause environmental damage or worsen a drought.  The newly formed Lamorinda AVA shows that our region is exceptional in its ability to produce unique grapes, and Captain Vineyards is at the vanguard of producing the very best wines. Our wines can only be purchased in-person or online. We invite you to come experience Captain Vineyards!

OWL award first in the county

OWLs
 
For the past several months, RATS has been working with the Emeryville 4-H Club to build barn owl boxes! Eleven members of the club built four owl boxes this spring, with adults pre-cutting the materials and the students assembling the boxes. But where to install them? To install an owl box, we need a poison-free radius of at least a mile. The answer came in the form of Contra Costa County’s first green winery, Captain Vineyards, a small, family-owned vineyard. In April, the students visited and toured the winery, and, presented their boxes and an Owl Wise Leader award to vintner Sal Captain and his family. Captain Vineyards is the county’s first and only green winery. He’s won awards from the county for sustainability—he uses no pesticides or rodenticides—as well as from East Bay MUD for water conservation and PG&E for energy conservation. - See more at: http://captainvineyards.com/2016/04/captain-vineyards-is-contra-costas-first-owl-friendly-winery/#sthash.aTAfWkoD.dpuf
