Join owners Barbara Shinn and David Page on a walk through their vineyard, where they will discuss the organic and biodynamic farming practices they are using, along with natural winemaking practices including indigenous yeast fermentations. They can answer your questions about biodynamic farming & the certification process, as well as addressing how they make use of practices such as:
• permanent cover cropping in tandem with permaculture
• compost tea
• biodynamic field preps
• putting compost “to sleep” for an extended summer cure.
