We're a small, family-run boutique winery. We hand craft small lots of wine made from grapes grown in our vineyards. Our estate vineyards have been certified organic for 24 years, since 1986. Recipient of prestigious "Masters of Organics" Award. No pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers are used. Every day is Earth Day here. We use sheep in our vineyards to eat the grass and weeds rather than extra tractor time and chemicals.
We are committed to rigorously following organic farming practices. We believe that these traditional methods insure healthy soil which nurtures robust vines that yield vibrant grapes- the basis of great wines!
Over the last decade we are proud to have won 446 medals in major wine competitions in California -more than any other winery using certified organic grapes.
We also have always recycled everything, have moved to lighter, more eco-friendly bottles and packaging.
However we are not hippies and do not wear tie-die shirts. We care about the environment and want to do the right thing. We expect that our product quality will be the high and competitive and hope that our buyers have a small extra sense of gratification supporting social and environmentally conscious companies.
Ben & Jerry's is an inspiration. People like brands that are fun, happy, true to themselves and avoid pretense, what Ben & Jerry's manages to be so well.
