We are a family farm growing natural agriculture grapes and crafting natural wines from our own estate vineyard in Mendocino county, Northern California. We strive to grow living soils and to produce beautiful healthy grapes in harmony with natural cycles. We are artisanal winegrowers and work on every single step, from growing our grapes to bottling the wine. Our family lifestyle is in harmony with the way we grow the grapes and make our wines and everyone is involved: the lables are designed by our two sons who also help us during harvest by driving the tractors.

In the vineyard, we follow the natural farming philosophy: no fertilizers nor pesticides of any kind, no-tilling, and dry-farming. This produces beautiful healthy vibrant grapes, and promotes and sustains a wondeful diversity of life in the vineyard and on the farm.

In the cellar, we don't use any additives of and we don't fine or filter. This produces pure vibrant wines that feel very alive in the mouth by respecting the living community in the wine and the natural fermentation and aging processes.
