The inspiration for farming this way was simple: organic grapes produce the purest expressions of the varietals and land on which they are farmed. Bonterra vineyards have been farmed organically since 1987, long before organic products were widely available in America. At Bonterra, we have a deep respect for the environment. Organic farming and regenerative practices enrich the biodiversity in our vineyards year after year.
Instead of spraying our vines with chemicals to ward off pests, our animal “partners” offer fantastic solutions for the natural challenges posed by organic farming. One of the greatest and most important assets in our vineyards is the soil. At Bonterra, we often say, “Soil is Everything.”
