About the Winemaker
I Nomad discovered a very special, mature vineyard in Mendocino County and wanted to share the wine from it. The vineyard is farmed only with the organically allowed inputs of sulfur, gypsum and fish emulsion (see the Pesticide Use Report, linked below), but it is not certified organic. It grows on a windy mountain-top, just above the fog line, which reduces mildew and pest pressure significantly. The vineyard is so densely planted that it can only be tended by hand - the vineyard doesn't even own a tractor. The vineyard is never tilled.
