We believe that in order to become successful grape growers and winemakers we must first create a healthy native ecosystem for our vineyards. In fact, we are so passionate about being dedicated caretakers of the land that we named ourselves Eco Terreno, which translates in Spanish to “land Ecology” and in Italian to “of the land”.
Eco Terreno Wines successfully transitioned to a Demeter USA certification in 2017 making us the largest biodynamically farmed contiguous vineyard in Alexander Valley. Our commitment to building biodiversity into the landscape employs extensive practices that are necessary to becoming a strong regenerative grower of grapes. As we explore the benefits of cover crops, bee gardens, husbandry, and develop a strong understanding of water usage, we become more respectful and informed stewards of our resources. Through this understanding, we support the native habitats and biodiversity in our vineyards which produce grapes and wine that reflect the full expression of our terroir.
