Biodynamic Culture

Since 2012, our vineyards are 100% biodynamic. Homeopathy in conjunction with agriculture that is respectful of the lunar cycle, and the use of plant-based vineyard treatments are all key elements to biodynamic culture. While this approach definitely makes our job more challenging, it also makes it intellectually stimulating! We are convinced that this is the path to protecting the health of our soil, our vineyards and our wines.

Biodynamic agriculture is based on ancient methods that work in conjunction with lunar and planetary rhythms. The approach comprises fertilization using an organic compost produced in-house, the application of various herb-infused solutions that promote the vine’s ability to fend off disease, and homeopathic treatments of both soil and vines. Eliminating the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides has resulted in renewed botanical diversity in our vineyards.
