Do you prefer red or white wine? How about green?
Sustainability has taken center stage in the wine industry. Winemakers across the globe have stepped up, implementing sustainable methods that produce green wine that’s not only better for the planet, but better for you too!
The organic movement can be a taken a step farther, though, through the use of bio-dynamics. The guiding philosophy of this style of farming is that natural elements are connected and dependent upon one another: the plants, the soil,, the animals who provide natural fertilizer, and the water and sunlight necessary for survival. It’s a self-sustaining cycle of growth that allows bio-dynamic farms to thrive.
For a vineyard like ours producing organically grown wine, maintaining a bio-dynamic co-dependency is a critical part of crafting clean, balanced offerings. It starts with soil itself, which is never exposed to synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Rather, we rely on natural versions of these products. Doing so allows our vines to grow in safe, toxin-free conditions.
The result: healthier, stronger roots and vines that can withstand drought and other stressors that inevitably occur. Bio-dynamic practices even produce greater yields of healthier crops, thanks to the improved soil quality and overall plant health.
Taking these steps also ensures that our impact on the earth is minimal. In fact, implementing bio-dynamic practices can benefit the planet by reversing some of the problems that conventional farming methods can cause, including soil degradation, toxic residues, and even loss of genetic diversity can occur with standard practices.
We believe that cultivating a symbiotic and bio dynamic environment in our vineyard is at the heart of crafting great wine. With all elements working together in harmony, our organically grown wine is smoother, cleaner, and more delicious. When you pair with farm- and garden-fresh foods, you truly know you’re nourishing your body and soul.
So let’s a raise a glass of green wine to bio-dynamics!
