Silverado Vineyards Farms
Silverado Vineyards – Home Ranch
Silverado Vineyards was founded by the Miller family in the 1970s with a winery, built in 1981. In 2007, Silverado Vineyards was recognized by the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance for Excellence in Water Quality Improvement and Protection, for completing an erosion control project on an old abandoned road.
This 200-acre site along the Napa River installed a project in 2006 to repair erosion on an ephemeral creek which could affect water quality. Planting of native species has been completed along the riparian areas of the property. This site is part of the Oakville to Oak Knoll Napa River Restoration Plan
Mt. George Vineyard
This 167-acre vineyard on the lower slopes of Mt. George includes numerous small creeks which have been revegetated with native plants.
Hopper Creek crosses through this 95-acre site and was planted with native trees and grasses in 2006 as part of their farm plan implementation.
