Sustainability and organic shreds - at Fetzer Vineyards even before it became cool.
Fetzer Vineyards Wines
The self-proclaimed earth friendly winery from Hopland, California, makes wine according to the motto, what's good for the earth is good for the grape. And because of Fetzer's balanced and flavorful wines, any departure from organic viticulture is a distant memory.
Fetzer Vineyards Wines of Mendocino County
Since 1968, when founder Barney Fetzer transformed a piece of farmland into a thriving vineyard, Fetzer Vineyards has been considered a pioneer in sustainable viticulture. But not only that; Fetzer is also considered the first winery in California to grow white grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Riesling. The Sundial Chardonnay is the godfather of the visionary approach and has been winning over tastes since 1981. The 1000 Stories Zinfandel, a purple red wine aged in barrels used for bourbon and suitable for festive occasions, has no less to tell. Fetzer Vineyards places a lot of emphasis on nature and thus the individual sites with their distinctive characteristics. To that end, the winery maintains parcels in the most sought-after wine regions throughout California, yet cultivate their deep roots in the Mendocino Valley. Whether at Eagle Peek, or Valley Oaks - the near-natural sites reveal themselves as the origin of Fetzer's award-winning top wines.
