Details

Originally from Spain and named after the Spanish city Murviedro, Mourvèdre is known as the signature varietal in France`s Bandol region and also used in the Languedoc and Southern Rhone as part of their red blends. It is a later ripening varietal that enjoys, dry, warm and sunny conditions. For this reason, our Mourvèdre is planted as bush vines to get the heat units from the earth when temperatures drop in the evenings. It is also a wind-resistant vine, making it unnecessary for us to trellis on supporting wires, as we do with our windswept sauvignon blanc vines, for example. We use organic and biodynamic methods and adhere to Old World, sustainable practices in our vineyards to ensure that the vines are nourished and in balance. Our soils are free of chemicals and are kept healthy by using plant extracts, fungi and bacteria from our own organic compost.
