There are many biodynamic practitioners in viticulture, but when it comes to regenerative viticulture through biodynamic, Hope Well is in the minority. Mimi Casteel speaks with a soft but unyielding voice about the effectiveness and the possibilities of regenerative viticulture. If biodynamic is to cultivate the vines by strengthening the land first, regenerative viticulture combats the effect of climate change while rehabilitating the land with biodynamic principles.
At Hope Well, Mimi demonstrated, within record time, that Mother Nature is powerful enough to resurrect soil that was deemed too lifeless to be agriculturally useful. The phrase 'wine is a living thing' could not be closer to the truth in the case of Hope Well.
