Sustainable Viticulture

February 4th, 2009 by Nicolette Bailey

Youngberg Hill Vineyards & Inn has been recertified as a sustainable vineyard by Oregon’s top sustainable oversite groups; LIVE Inc. and Salmon Safe. Since farming organically in 2003, we have continued to use more sustainable farming practices each year. Our goal is to become more biodynamic over the next five years.

Why practice biodynamics and sustainablity? The first obvious answer is that it is better for the environment. The second is that it is better for the farm. The soil is a living organism loaded with other living organisms. The soil needs to maintain its health and vitality just like the human body and plants do. If we do not keep the soil healthy, it cannot sustain itself or other life. The third is that it is better for the vines. As with healthy soil, plants need to be healthy and have the right nutients flowing through their veins to sustain life and also live in harmony with the soil. The fourth answer is that it is better for the wine. Since 2003 we have seen annual improvement of the quality of the grapes and that translates in to higher quality wines.

We continue to strive for better lives for all.
