Enterprise Vineyards

Description

At Enterprise Vineyards, cover crops are planted every year to enhance biodiversity, minimize soil erosion, control weeds, fertilize the soil without chemical inputs, and improve the structure and microbial activity of the soil.
Only minimal inputs are used and never any synthetic pesticides or herbicide. Integrated Pest Management techniques are used to maintain balance in the vineyard. We work to control any disease or pest before it becomes a problem through intense monitoring and increased biodiversity in all of our farming practices.
Wine flavors are enhanced when the grapes are grown in an environment that retains an essence of its natural state. When planning a new vineyard, we insist on allowing for extensive stands of native habitat. We provide songbird and owl boxes and raptor roosts to help restore the balance and foster pest control. We plant native plants, insectaries, orchards and gardens throughout the properties to increase the habitat for beneficial insects and reptiles and birds. We control and seek to eradicate invasive species to protect our native habitat. Our farming methods minimize runoff into streams and riparian areas to help provide for a sustainable salmon and steelhead population.
