Sterling Vineyards has unveiled a new line of organic wines from Mendocino County.
Winemaker Malcolm Seibly, with 30 years of winemaking experience, produced these wines from fruit grown in the organic Beckstoffer, Guinness McFadden and Patianna vineyards in the Mendocino area, known for industry-leading organic farming techniques.
“Across the country, interest in organic foods and concern for the environment has become a priority for many people,” Seibly said. “Sterling has long been interested in environmental sustainability for our industry, and our commitment to this has only increased.”
Organic farming emphasizes precise timing and traditional practices such as cultivating symbiotic plants to aerate and nourish the soil, and attracting favorable insects such as ladybugs for pest control and bees for pollination.
