Parducci Wine Cellars
At Parducci, viticultural practices are rooted in the belief that
great wines begin in healthy vineyards.
Every aspect of our estate, and those whom we source fruit from,
is considered to create a healthy environment for the vines.
Cover crops are planted to enrich the soil
and support biodiversity in the vineyard.
Habitat is preserved and created for beneficial insects
and birds which act as effective, natural pest control.
Domestic animals contribute nutrients to the soil,
so synthetic fertilizers are not needed. They are also
a low impact solution to managing weeds.
Sheep eat the grass and weeds.
Chickens till the soil and eat insects.
The domestic animals, along with leftover grape skins,
seeds and stems from the winemaking process
all contribute to our extensive compost operation.
This compost will naturally feed the vines.
A thoughtfully constructed wetlands area reclaims water from the
winemaking process, naturally treats it, and provides us with a
nutrient rich, sustainable source of water for our vineyards.
Together the marriage of traditional viticulture practices
with innovative sustainable ideas create deeply rooted and healthy vineyards
that produce superior fruit for better wines.
