Biodiversity and soil fertility form the bedrock of our low-intervention winemaking. Healthy soil is essential for nurturing the powerful, resilient vines that we need for our viticulture. Which is why we are so pleased to see the many colorful meadow flowers blossoming cheerfully in our vineyards right now. We sowed our own custom mix of 28 different types of seed*. This diversity enlivens the soil and welcomes countless beneficial organisms to settle there as well.
