At Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard, meticulous viticulture and strict ecological standards enable us to produce estate wines of balance, complexity, and focus. Every growing season we plant multiple cover crops through our vineyard rows to promote soil structure and attract beneficial species. We have eliminated herbicide use in the vineyards, focusing instead on the unique advantages of a more resilient, robust ecosystem.
All estate fruit is hand-harvested and hand-sorted. Multiple passes through each row during harvest ensure that we capture exact levels of ripeness. Our fermentations rely on indigenous and ambient yeasts, resulting in additional lees contact and a distinct textural component. We eschew fining and filtering additives.
