In farming, irrigation is a common practice. Conventional wine companies engage in widespread man-made watering to lower farming costs and increase fruit yield.
Our Natural Growers do not irrigate, instead letting the vines find their natural water source. This practice is known as “dry farming.” They believe what we do: irrigation is unnecessary, bad for the planet, bad for the vine, and produces nutrient poor fruit.
Collectively, we estimate our growers save roughly 1.4 billion gallons of water annually by not irrigating.
