Biodynamic agriculture goes beyond organic, envisioning the farm as a self-contained and self-sustaining organism. In an effort to keep the farm, the farmer, the consumer, and the earth healthy, farmers avoid chemical pesticides and fertilizers, utilize compost and cover crops, and set aside a minimum of 10% of their total acreage for biodiversity.

 
             
 
 
 

The grapes –
all from Johan Vineyards -
were co-fermented in stainless steel (2/3) and neutral French oak barrels (1/3) for about 6 months, using only native yeast. The goal was to create an aromatic, dry white wine that would pair excellent with shellfish, fish and vegetables.

The wine went through partial malolactic fermentation and was bottled April 30, 2012.

This Pinot Noir is made entirely
from our own biodynamic® certified, estate grown fruit at Johan Vineyards. The grapes were fermented in small batches using only native yeast – for both primary and malolactic fermentation. During primary fermentation the cap was punched down three times per day, by foot.
The wine was then pressed off and barreled down into neutral French oak barrels, where it aged for 7 months.

The Farmlands Pinot Noir is young, vibrant and juicy, with good acid and tannin structure.
