A Steady Commitment to Farming & Wine
Taste our grapes — their quality encapsulates our unwavering commitment to farming. From dormancy to bud break, bloom to véraison and finally to harvest, Sangiacomo Family Vineyards seeks to produce the highest quality fruit with the lowest environmental impact possible — creating the optimal ecology for vines. That means using cover crops to stem erosion during the rainy months. That also means suckering, vine training, shoot positioning and canopy management by hand.
This intimate relationship with our vines has led us to understand the need to incorporate sustainable farming methods into our growing protocol. Our goal is to reduce the amount of inputs required to grow the highest quality wine grapes possible — while continuing to improve upon that same quality our family has worked so hard to achieve. In areas where we can no longer reduce inputs, we are dedicated to finding and implementing alternatives that have less environmental impact. These inputs range from electrical usage to the nutrients in the soils beneath our treasured vines. We look to these, and other growing techniques, to align with the needs of our customers.
Finally, we believe that the best grapes are hand harvested. So, in the dark and cold nights of autumn, we roll up our sleeves and proudly bring in the fruits of our labor in pristine condition.
Then our vintner partners put their magic to work, and we look forward to tasting the high quality wines our grapes were grown to become.
