After lavishing his attention on icon wines high up in the Santa Cruz mountains, Jim Warner comes down to Paso Robles, Central Coast, California where the Foxglove range of wines comes from
Jim’s twin brother, Bob, is the winemaker. Bob’s ethos is to let the fruit do the talking. Simplicity is the key and he claims if you start with perfect fruit, then the winemaking needs minimal intervention.
The Foxglove range is getting a fine reputation for superb quality price ratio. Others in the range are Zinfandel and Chardonnay.
Organic & Biodynamic Wines
With minimal intervention and low sulphur – the cornerstones of any good organic winemaker – critics argue you can actually taste this living environment, the wine’s ‘terroir’. Biodynamic winemaking goes beyond organics, it's a holistic approach to farming. Following the biodynamic calendar vineyard tasks will only occur on stated days and only natural products will be used.
What are Organic & Biodynamic wines?
No artificial chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides
Winemaking following the natural rhythms of Mother Earth.
