About Civic Winery
Grapes from vineyards farmed with organic practices at a minimum and absolutely no glyphosate use (synthetically produced herbicide).
Allowing the yeast from the vineyard and already present in the winery to ferment the wine. We refer to this as native, spontaneous, and/or uninoculated. Using minimal amounts of sulfites (preservative), if at all, to keep wine delicious so you can enjoy it wherever you are. Fermenting and aging as much of our wine as possible in earthen vessels, mostly clay pots (amphorae) and concrete tanks.
Our aim is to make delicious wine from grapes and grapes alone. If we make a decision to add anything or adjust a wine in any way, we will let you know. Transparency is critical so that each of us can make the best decisions we can for ourselves, our family, and our community.
When we say “winemaking” what do we really mean? What is that we’re actually doing?
The goal of the Civic is to be transparent about our process. Every day each of us make decisions about what to eat and drink, guided by an array of information and personal perception about what is most beneficial to us at that time. We want to be part of your life as a product you can trust, each and every time you enjoy a bottle.
