Johan Vineyards is committed to meticulous vineyard management practices, highlighted by Biodynamic farming methods and permaculture design. Biodynamic farming focuses on the entire farm as one living organism. They farm to mimic the natural microbiological ecology of the soil where vines evolved. This produces vines more resistant to disease and creates a healthy natural immune system within the vine.
Biodynamic farming combines the knowledge of premium organic viticultural practices with an understanding of how to treat the vineyard and its surrounding areas in order to achieve desired long‐term farming results.
The vineyard is broken into multiple blocks that feature 13 different varieties, with 10 clones of Pinot Noir & 7 of Chardonnay, multiple rootstocks, across varying aspects and soil types. The combination of all of these factors creates a diverse system, providing Johan Vineyards with an array of options to achieve complexity and balance in the resulting finished wines.
