Award Winning: Our summer intern Spencer, has gained the recognition for his hard work and unique educational experience maintaining our organic vineyard in Brookfield. Spencer as part of his High School Curriculum gains experience in agriculture at a local farm. He was awarded "Outstanding Sophomore SAE Award", given by the Woodbury FFA Chapter. Congratulate Spencer if you see him this summer around our grounds or winery.
We have begun the process of transitioning our Brookfield Vineyard & grounds to Organic with the USDA and an Organic Certifying Service.
The process takes two to three years and We plan to have an Organic Certified wine out in 2018.
This is the next step in a long process to make the best wines anywhere, We pioneered a wine with no additives in 1989- Honey Blush with no added sulfites. Everybody told us you couldn't do it- after 28 years of solid sales I think you can. Then We got an interest in antioxidants and released Wild Blue, blueberry wine with brandy in 1996. So next will be our organic series still in development, stay tuned.
Organic Viticulture is based on no synthetic fertilizer or pesticides used. Natural fertilizers create a healthy soil that in turn nourishes the vines with just What they need, requiring less inputs. We are also experimenting with carbon sequestration to help take carbon out of the environment and lock it up in the soil.
Our intern has just taken an interest in an organic technique used in vegetable production called Korean Natural Farming- this involves creating natural composts( indigenous microorganisms) cultured from our site, we are applying this ancient technology to some of our grape rows to increase grape yields by increasing soil fertility naturally. This summer tours will be given of our progress call or email for more information.
