Farmhouse Wines was born out of the desire to not only create a clean, herbicide and chemical free wine, but also to teach future generations about what it means to farm with nature, not against it.
 
Farmhouse takes its name from the school house located at Green String Farm in Petaluma, California. It serves as the library and study room for conscientious students from around the globe seeking to learn the Green String Method of sustainable farming.

This method of “beyond sustainable” farming, was developed by Fred Cline and Bobby Cannard, two kindred spirits who believe that study and observation of nature can lead to balanced and better farming practices. Students at Green String learn how to respect the earth and respond to the needs of their environment as they raise food that brings health to local communities. 
Farmhouse Wines are part of the Cline Cellars portfolio of wines from Sonoma, California.
 
At Farmhouse Wines, the winemaker allows grapes to tell their story. He doesn’t over-oak or manipulate the wines. Instead, he uses blending to highlight and showcase the best that Mother Nature offers. No herbicides, pesticides or synthetic fertilizers are used. Crop cultivation is encouraged and weeding is done by hungry sheep, or by hand, while friendly insects are introduced to control harmful insects.

Grapes for the Farmhouse California Red blend were picked, destemmed and pumped to a temperature-controlled fermenting tank. A combination of native and pure wine yeasts were used to begin fermentation of the separate lots. Grapes were pressed once the fermentation extracted the perfect amount of tannins from the skins. Both free run and press juice were combined to enhance the wine’s structure. The wine was then racked to 40% new French oak with medium toast which enhanced, but did not overpower, the fruit.
