Cornerstone Society 2022

Land Trust Cornerstone Society members gathered together at Alpha Omega Winery on Saturday, September 24th for a wonderful evening celebrating another successful year in conservation. The event was generously hosted by the Vice-Chair of our Board, Robin Baggett and his wife Michelle at their beautiful winery in St. Helena. At the event, we were able to announce the protection of over 3,000 acres since last year’s celebration and since the Cornerstone Society was formed eight years ago, the Land Trust has been able to permanently protect over 35,000 acres!

Robin and Michelle have a longstanding commitment to conservation and to protecting the beauty of Napa. Together they have donated a conservation easement, permanently protecting over 4,400 acres of land in Napa. Their winery, Alpha Omega is a family-owned, boutique winery in the Rutherford appellation. The land and winery are both certified by Napa Green, a comprehensive environmental certification program for vineyards and wineries in the Napa Valley. The program represents a soil-to-bottle approach to environmental stewardship and winemaking, integrating holistic management practices at every step of the process.

The Land Trust thanks the members of our 2022 Cornerstone Society and offers our gratitude for their generous support of our ongoing mission to preserve agricultural, biodiverse, scenic and viewshed lands in Napa County in perpetuity.

We wish to once again thank our hosts Robin and Michelle for a wonderful evening! Land Trust CEO Doug Parker, the Board of Trustees and staff extend our gratitude to all of these far-sighted local families and organizations helping protect Napa for the long term.
