Shafer Vineyards


`One of the world`s greatest wineries, Shafer Vineyards is the quintessential example of how a family-run winery should conduct its affairs.` - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Doug Shafer, risking derision as a `tree hugger`, broke new ground as a quality-oriented producer in the winter of 1989 by planting cover crops and abandoning pesticides. It marked the beginning of their conversion to sustainable farming (organic bar weedkillers occasionally used on the hillsides unworkable with machetes). More than 10 years have elapsed but the benefits are still accruing- the grape juice is richer in micronutrients, and the fermentations are easier to control, according to winemaker Elias Fernandez. And progress continues- in December last year solar panels were installed on the roof of the winery and self-sufficiency attained. Napa, at least, may have put its electricity woes behind it - because where Shafer leads, others tend to follow. (CC 28/10/09)
