Running my grandparent's family vineyard, I believe that by investing in our food community, we’re supporting our friends, our neighbors, our local economy. Ultimately, that has a multiplier effect. It’s setting up a framework for the future.
Noah gives away much of his harvest, keeping only 25 or 30 percent to bottle himself.
Noah may have product available for hobby wine makers, and individuals can enjoy his grapes at the El Rancho de Las Golondrinas harvest festival.
Noah's operation is organic, and free of pesticides and herbicides. He relies on drip irrigation, both for its precision and to prevent evaporation loss. And he plans to introduce rye grass as a cover crop, which will naturally enrich the soil, manage weeds, control erosion and attract bees.
