More on Winegrowing

In the Vineyard

In the vineyard, we employ generative farming practices, seeking to direct the power of nature to our benefit rather than working against it.  We recycle all green waste through our composting program and return that energy to our soil.  We follow the Earth’s and Moon’s natural cycles to guide the timing of applications to the vineyard.  We seek to create an integrated ecosystem that welcomes beneficial predator species to reduce the use of human-imposed pest control.  In so doing, we look to harness the power of nature and its self-regulating ability to create a harmonious, self-sustaining environment for premium wine grape cultivation.

In the Cellar

In the cellar, we take a minimalist, non-interventionist approach to winemaking.  Our intent is to allow each wine to express its own unique terroir and we believe that the more the winemaker does to the wine, the more it will lose that expression.  We ferment with native yeasts and avoid the use of unnecessary additives.  We use minimal amounts of new oak on the wines so that the fruit expression can come through clearly and precisely.
