Dedication To The Land
The partners have long been concerned with the pressures of commercial farming on the earth. Monocultures, commercial fertilizers, high-volume pressures fad taken their toll on too many beautiful farms. After studying the most celebrated properties in Burgundy and Bordeaux, and eager to make world-class wines that come from such properties, the partners quickly agreed that Organic (and Biodynamic) would be central hallmarks of their winemaking. The company vowed in 2015 that the large majority of Westwood wines would only come from sources that were Sustainable, Biodynamic or Organically farmed. And in 2016, Westwood’s Annadel Gap Vineyard became fully Demeter certified Biodynamic and certified organic.
