WHAT IS DRY FARMING?
Dry farming is the cultivation of crops without the use of irrigation.
Our region has good spring rainfall and a long dry summer, in combination with our soils, this allows for dry farming of a wide range of grape varieties. With just under a 1000mm of rainfall a year, our unique soil types, silken clay and fine silt loams, have high moisture holding contents and the ability to amass very high levels of microbial activity to ensure the plants stay in balance during the season.
Growing grapes with natural rainfall produces our distinctive fruit-driven wines with weight and intensity.
