We use only hand-picked berries we grow on site to make our wine. Since our berries are grown right around the winery, minimal fossil fuels are used to transport them. Most large wineries use grapes that are harvested with a combine, but ours are picked by hand which burns infinitely less fuel. Most importantly, using only what we grow gives us greater control over our environmental impact.

Our winery is a structure of Oak built almost completely from trees surrounding our vineyard. They were harvested in a sustainable manner and very little energy was spent preparing them for use. The winery has no windows in order to be more energy efficient. Since we are so green, our company rarely has monthly power bills that exceed $100.

Being one of the greenest buildings you will ever set foot in, our tasting room is built almost completely from materials recycled from eleven different local barns and buildings. It also contains some wood from trees harvested around our vineyard. It contains no purchased lumber. Bought lumber requires greater amounts of fossil fuels to transport and process.
