Here at Montinore Estate we farm 210 acres of vineyards located in the foothills of the Coastal Mountain Range in the northern Willamette Valley. In July 2008 we received our Biodynamic® certification from Demeter USA – the only Biodynamic® certifying agency in the U.S. – and organic certification from Stellar. We are committed to producing finely crafted wines that express the unique character of the northern Willamette Valley, while farming using the strict standards of Biodynamic® practices.
“Biodynamic® agriculture is a philosophy and methodology that views a farm as a self-sustaining ecosystem entirely responsible for creating and maintaining its individual health and vitality without any external and unnatural additions. It is one of the most sustainable forms of agriculture, creating healthier food for healthier people and a healthier planet.” – Demeter USA.
