Quintessa Wines

As stewards of this remarkable place, we have always farmed Quintessa with sustainable practices, including biodynamic and organic farming, to maintain harmony with the soil, vegetation and animal life. It is Valeria's intent to keep the soils of Quintessa as rich in microorganisms as she found them. This is achieved by avoiding all chemical controls, minimum tilling and soil disturbance, and use of diverse cover crops, which has the effect of enriching the soil's microorganisms. We have planted native plants and grasses in the vineyard margins throughout the property to encourage populations of beneficial insects, and removed plants that harbor harmful grapevine pests.
