We believe balance is important in everything we do and that is certainly true in the vineyard. Over the last five years we have been farming according to organic guidelines and have employed sustainable practices for three generations. There are an abundance of fruit and nut trees planted around the property that provide needed diversity. We use organic compost and annual cover crop for soil building and plant nutrition, and cultivate the soil in spring and early summer to incorporate the cover crop and preserve natural soil moisture making it available for the vines. The practice of cultivation helps to achieve proper vine balance, this, along with drought tolerant rootstock selection, reduces water demand. Sustainability means to us that future generations of our family will have the opportunity to farm this land with the same or better conditions than we started with.
