This week’s WineStopper visit is with Cyndee Nelson of DeLoach Vineyards. The pick of the week is DeLoach Vineyards’ 2020 Estate Vineyard Chardonnay. This beautiful, luscious tasting wine is a tasting room favorite and is from their Estate Vineyard. On February 3, 2010, Demeter USA, the only certification agent for Biodynamic® farms in the United States, certified the 17-acre estate vineyard and garden at DeLoach Vineyards, fully compliant with their standards for Demeter Biodynamic status. As one of less than 100 wineries or vineyards in the U.S. with Demeter certified Biodynamic estate vineyards, DeLoach is among an elite group of sustainable wine grape growers committed to farming in parallel with the Earth’s natural cycles.
