The Garden Introduces its House Wine from Cowhorn Vineyards in Oregon
We are now proud to offer our guests a biodynamic wine produced by extended family in Oregon. This vineyard exemplifies the philosophy and practises we characterize in "Bernadette's Organic Botanicals". Cowhorn Wine is certified by Demeter® USA a the non-profit American chapter of Demeter International, the world’s only certifier of Biodynamic® farms and products. Biodynamic agriculture goes beyond organic, envisioning the farm as a self-contained and self-sustaining organism. In an effort to keep the farm, the farmer, the consumer, and the earth healthy, farmers avoid chemical pesticides and fertilizers, utilize compost and cover crops, and set aside a minimum of 10% of their total acreage for biodiversity. Cowhorn Wine offerings include Syrah, Grenache, Grenache Rose, Viognier and others. Read more about this product at http://www.cowhornwine.com/index.html. You're invited to come to the garden and get a sampling of the "grape."
