Biodynamic

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


Tasting Notes

A blend of Riesling, Vermentino, and Viognier from the unsung climes of Southern Oregon, this dry skin-contact white is a standout.

Pair with Pacific salmon and roasted squash.
