In 2006 Hawley Vineyards have become licensed natural via California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) after 3 years of following organic practices. Not handiest can we accept as true with within the philosophy of sustainable agriculture but are convinced that organic grapes make better wine. Crop and berry length are decreased, truly doing away with the need for crop thinning. We feel that organic growing reveals a extra true expression of terroir because the farmer isn’t providing the vines with extraordinary nutrients.

Since we commenced growing our grapes organically, we’ve observed a shift in the environment of the winery. Wild strawberries grow beneath the vines, lizards scurry around consuming any would-be pests, and a circle of relatives of pink shouldered hawks has moved into an antique tree above the vineyard; everything is greater balanced. John continues tabs on all of the hawks within the area. As a young man he become a falconer and saved many hawks, and it remains a passion of his.
