Dry Farmed

The definition of a “dry farmer” is one who never irrigates his vines, no matter the conditions. Dry farming techniques can result in lower overall yield, but grapes that have less concentrated sugar and produce “drier” wines.

Proponents of dry farm wines believe that it’s the soil’s job to provide adequate moisture to sustain the vines and allow grapes to thrive in a non-irrigated vineyard. When vines have to struggle for moisture, they often grow much deeper and stronger roots, which many believe results in superior grapes, especially when combined with organic and Biodynamic production methods.
