Biodynamic, Organic, Sustainable

Wine to Mike and Claudia Weersing is a genie, genius loci: “our job is to coax it from its rock to bottle.” Every gesture they make, in vineyard and winery, is a summons to this spirit of place. Biodynamics, hand-based viticulture, low yields, natural winemaking—these are some of the means they’ve adopted to record and transmit this voice. Each wine is allowed to flower as it wishes. With the Grower’s Collection, are able to work with admired colleagues, and with sites, soils, and varieties different than those of their home vineyard. All of their wines are devoted to people and place; all bring rich rewards of community.
