Glenterra Vineyards maintains 5 acres of sustainably dry farmed vineyards in the Cowichan Valley, additional grapes are purchased as needed from vineyards that use similarly responsible farming methods. No chemical herbicides, systemic fungicides or pesticides are used, only natural fertilizers with organic ingredients and our composted pomace for the vineyard. We are proud to have been farming our property in this manner for 20+ years. Since the 2010 vintage our winemaking has emphasized a minimalist & natural approach, no enzymes used at crush, indigenous yeast fermentation, no animal based fining products. (vegan friendly) and minimal use of sulphites. These protocols produce wines with vibrant character that are expressive of their terroir.
