Biodynamic

Wine made from grapes grown organically using natural composting techniques and special preparations of herbal sprays while following the astronomical calendar.


Tasting Notes

Winemaker Mimi Casteel is a force of nature, literally. She farms biodynamically and regeneratively, meaning she never tills, never irrigates and encourages habitat. As a result, her Pinot Noir is thing of beauty and purity. Brilliant red fruit, elegant and silky that would no doubt age gracefully.

Staff Pick Notes

Edmond Burke once said, “…your representative owes you, not only his industry, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.” While Ed was talking about the House of Commons I don’t see why we can’t apply this sentiment to producers of food and wine. Mimi Casteel is the type of farmer we need right now. Her hard work and avant garde methods make tremendous wine and will change the world. While she sells a lot of her crop to some of the top winemakers in Oregon she also vinifies a small amount into Hope Well. A crème de la crème kind of Pinot Noir. She calls her farming regenerative agriculture. I call it the right thing to do.

Oregon

The largest wine region in Oregon is the Willamette Valley, lying between the cities of Portland and Eugene and home to most of Oregon’s wineries. As it does not have one homogeneous climate, it has been broken up into several different AVAs. In the best of them, the perfect amounts of wind, rain, sun exposure, and altitude combine to give Pinot Noir the warm days and cool nights it needs in...
