SOIL & EARTH

One of the most significant benefits of natural wine production is the positive impact on soil health. Low-Intervention wine production relies on traditional techniques and natural processes to create wines that are a true expression of the vineyard and the grapes, this tends to mean biodynamic and organic farming practices are implemented. These practices include cover cropping, crop rotation, and the use of compost and other organic materials. Cover cropping involves planting non-commercial crops such as legumes, grasses, or clover between vine rows to increase soil fertility and reduce erosion. Crop rotation helps to prevent soil depletion and nutrient loss. The use of compost and other organic materials provides essential nutrients to the soil, leading to healthy vine growth and improved grape quality.

Moreover, natural wine production promotes biodiversity and the preservation of natural habitats. Unlike conventional winemaking that often involves clearing land for vineyards, natural winemakers work with the natural environment and use the existing landscape to their advantage. By preserving natural habitats and promoting biodiversity, natural wine production helps to protect endangered species and maintain ecological balance.

 

Plus, natural wine production promotes the health of the earth by reducing the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. This approach helps to protect the soil from degradation and maintain its health for future generations.
