Vineyard at Napa’s Dominus Estate goes organic
Dominus Estate recently announced that sustainably and dry-farmed Napanook vineyard on May 10, 2021 was certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) certification for organic farming practices.
Over the years, the Dominus team has worked to achieve the Napa Green Land and the Napa Green Winery accreditations. This CCOF certification marks the culmination of Dominus’ efforts in creating ideal conditions for grapegrowing.
“Dry farming is at the heart of our sustainable approach,” said vineyard director Guillaume Eicholz. “While conserving water, our vines grow deeper roots, building resistance even in extreme climate conditions.”
Growing grapes organically fosters the biodiversity of the soils as well as ensures the health of the environment and the well-being of the vineyard workers, according to a news release from the company.
“This organic certification spurs on our efforts to better understand the complexity of our environment and to constantly fine-tune our practices in harmony with nature while preserving our cultural heritage,” said owner Christian Moueix.
