Our Commitment to Sustainability

  • We have been utilizing cover cropping as our primary weed management strategy in the vineyards we manage since 2020.
  • We grow cover crops (clovers & low grasses) under our vines to outcompete weeds, increase plant diversity, improve soil structure, increase organic matter, and sequester carbon.
  • We are committed to the preservation of Leelanau County through a conservation easement on our 30 acre Elm Valley property.
  • We recycle! Glass, wooden pallets and cardboard.
