In the vineyard it is our goal to be as sustainable as possible using a systems approach to growing and pest control. Our farming practices are organic but we don't have any certifications. We prefer not to deal with the paperwork and expense of certification, but we promise that any additions we make in our vineyard are certified organic. We add compost when the vineyard needs it and we grow a cover crop to supply nutrients and organic matter to our soil. All weed control is done with a mower or a shovel. We do not and will not use herbicides to control weeds and we do everything we can to make our vineyard hospitable to everything that lives in it.
We strive to dry-farm our vineyard but we do have to occasionally irrigate with water from our well. We use as little water as we can get away with and hope that the vines will continue to dig deeper to find their own source.
As with our winemaking practices we will gladly tell you anything you want to know about our growing practices.
