This month is Organic September and Forty Hall Vineyard are supporting The Soil Association on their mission to persuade shoppers to choose organic food and drink. We believe that our own award winning wines taste better because they are grown and made organically.
At Forty Hall Vineyard we grow grapes naturally, with as little intervention as possible:
We don't use synthetic fungicides, herbicides or fertilisers. This encourages sustainability, biodiversity and natural balance.
The vines grow in a living soil, free of chemical residues, drawing optimum levels of minerals from the soil, becoming stronger with better natural resistance to disease. These vines will produce fruit for years to come.Pests are controlled by biological methods Mildew is a common problem for vines, ours are managed by salts such as elemental (not man-made) sulphur. The use of these methods is carefully controlled and limited.
By growing and managing the vines this way we believe that the wine produced from our grapes best reflects the terroir, the unique characteristics of the place, the soil and its micro-climate.
