From the roots to the glass, Eco Terreno is dedicated to creating estate wines that nurture relationships to our land, each other, and the celebration that follows. Our team is driven by a vision of the end result, which happens to be celebratory, involving relationships and wine. As we witness the vital connections in biodynamic farming, we are humbled by the creative and supportive relationships of nature. The end results in truly expressive wines created by bold Alexander Valley fruit grown in a healthy environment.
In addition, we strive to nurture our planet and its inhabitants by committing to being part of the solution, as opposed to part of the problem, and hope to inspire others to do the same. We are confident that small steps create greater strides, and are grateful to share our journey and our wines with you.
We believe that in order to become successful grape growers and winemakers, we must first create a healthy native ecosystem for our vineyards. In fact, we are so passionate about being dedicated caretakers of the land that we named ourselves Eco Terreno, which translates in Spanish to “land ecology” and in Italian to “of the land."
Eco Terreno Wines & Vineyards successfully transitioned to a Demeter USA certification in 2017, making us the largest biodynamically farmed contiguous vineyard in Alexander Valley. Our commitment to building biodiversity into the landscape employs extensive practices that are necessary to becoming a strong regenerative grower of grapes. As respectful and informed stewards of our resources, we recognize the benefits of cover crops, bee gardens, husbandry, and water usage. By actively supporting the native habitats and biodiversity in - and around - our vineyards, Eco Terreno wines are a true expression of their terroir.
