|The pursuit of premium wine begins with a vibrant, healthy vineyard ecosystem that allows vines to flourish and grapes to show the individuality of the terroir.
In the 35 years since growing his first organic vineyard, Phil has proven that not only are sustainable farming practices better for the farmers and the environment, they produce better wine. The grapes used for Winery Sixteen 600 are all certified organic or biodynamic.
No chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides are ever applied. Dense covercrops and insectuaries promote biodiversity and enrich the rocky soils with vital nutrients. Yields are kept low, vines are hand worked and watered minimally. The result is ripe, vibrant flavors, rich, full-bodied wines that allow the varietals and region to shine.
