Powered by the Sun, Sustained by the Wind.

At Anaba Wines, we don’t just talk about sustainability – we embody it. In 2009, we pioneered wind energy utilization in Northern California, combined with the power of solar panels to achieve 100% renewable electricity. Our commitment extends to the very fabric of our winery infrastructure, where green building practices minimize waste, water consumption, and energy use. Our wastewater management system serves not only the environment but also becomes a haven for local wildlife.

“At the end of the day, we want to feel good about the impact we have. I’ve always held that sustainable business practices are the only way forward. It’s the right thing to do. As a family-owned winery, my aspiration is for future generations to cherish and enjoy Anaba as we do today.” —John Sweazey, Founder
