As stated on Bonterra.com, “There’s certified organic and then there’s the spirit of organic – our grapes are 100% of both. Organic certification means we don’t use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. The spirit of organic means we don’t have to do all we do. The spirit of organic is a proactive approach that places us in tune with the vines and the land, observing their cues and anticipating what they need. Each and every vine has its own mood, and our viticulturists know them all. This ensures we are delivering the best expression of that fruit from our vines to your glass.”
