Practices we use to Promote Healthy Sustainable Farming


harvesting grapes

Organic Agroecological farming since 1979. 

100% of our operations are managed by two key philosophies:

Organic practices & Agroecology.  Our passion and  primary goal is to ensure our practices in raising unique luxury quality wine grapes helps regenerate the land, and help support our communities.  In this, we ensure that all of our inputs are certified organic.  

Our secondary driving philosophy is to ensure that 100% of our practices also work within natural systems.  Ecology is the study of systems that create balance in our communities, such as the relationships between plants, animals, people, and our environment.  Agroecology is the application of ecological concepts and principals in farming.  

Our daily strategy is driven ultimately with the following in mind.

  • Grow soils, vines, wines, and individuals
  • Progressively improve quality of life
  • Empowered Participation
  • Focus on Biodiversity 
  • Celebrate our community, its history, its sense of place
  • Act locally while thinking and engaging globally
