Dry Farming means there was no irrigation used to grow the grapes.
This sustainable farming practice is used all around the world. Without sprinklers or water pipes, the vines are stressed in the best way possible. They grow deeper into the soil - up to 30 meters compared to 3 feet on a typical American vineyard.
Research has shown dry farming produces an environmental trigger in the grape’s DNA to express genes that result in higher polyphenol levels in the wine.
It's so important to our mission we named our company after it!
