Organic, Regenerative OrganicⓇ & BiodynamicⓇ Certifications

Our oldest vineyard received organic certification with California Certified Organic Farming (CCOF) in 1984. Each of the four estate vineyards that produce fruit for the Neal Family Vineyards wine programs as well as another 600 acres under JNS management are enrolled in CCOF, and our vineyards received DemeterⓇ BiodynamicⓇ certification in 2021.

Our  Howell Mountain estate winery, Neal Family Vineyards, achieved Regenerative Organic Certified® as recognized by the Regenerative Organic Alliance (ROA) in 2022. The ROA was established in 2018 and is today considered the highest level of certification. There are only five vineyard estates worldwide that hold Regenerative Organic Certified® status and Neal Family Vineyards represented the first Napa Valley vineyard to receive this certification.

The Jack Neal & Son viticulturist team’s primary focus is staying informed on industry-leading organic and BiodynamicⓇ farming practices, applications, and resources and then implementing them across all our vineyards.

Owing to the rigorous CCOF program standards, we continuously find the purest source of elements for the vineyard. We do not use artificial and synthetic materials or petroleum and nitrogen-based items. As farmers, we understand the unhealthy implications of these by-products in wine and are deeply committed to the highest quality standards. Instead, we rely on naturally mined materials like clay, potassium, and calcium; animals and their by-products, flowers and seeds; and essential oils. 

“You have that one shot after farming 364 days out of the year to get it right.”  — Mark Neal
