HJW Flower Day Riesling


2022 - Brand New Release!


The 2022 vintage marks an exciting direction for our Flower Day production. It is our first time incorporating fruit from not only our Demeter-certified HJW Vineyard but also Riesling from our "in-transition" biodynamically farmed block at our Standing Stone site. This wine is fresh and exuberant in nature and is dry with an almost playful effervescence. This wine highlights our commitment to ecosystem health and comprehensive viticulture practices. We adhere to unique farming methods that focus not solely on our vineyards but on the totality of our farm, promoting biodiversity in adjacent fields, forests, and meadows, while utilizing cover crops, beneficials, and homeopathic teas and preparations. On the biodynamic calendar, there are four kinds of days: root days, flower days, fruit days, and leaf days. Each of these days has certain tasks associated with it; fruit days are meant for harvesting, leaf days for watering, root days for pruning. On flower days, the vineyard is left alone to rest - so we suggest resting and enjoying this delicious riesling!
