Inaugural Release of 1NGREDIENT

1NGREDIENT wine rep­re­sents an evo­lu­tion that com­bines our past 25+ years of wine­grow­ing and wine­mak­ing knowl­edge with our pas­sion for the Bio­dy­nam­ic farm­ing prin­ci­ples. As its name implies, 1NGREDIENT is wine made from one ingre­di­ent, Bio­dy­nam­i­cal­ly cer­ti­fied wine grapes. Because there are no addi­tives or preser­v­a­tives uti­lized, this is our first wine which can be clas­si­fied as a nat­ur­al” wine in most circles.

Just Added: Biodynamic Calendar Symbol

The Bio­dy­nam­ic Cal­en­dar allows farm­ers to proac­tive­ly focus their work on the part of the plant that is most respon­sive on a day to day basis.

Updated Vineyard Maps

Beck­men Vine­yards con­sists of two sep­a­rate vine­yards with dra­mat­i­call­y dif­fer­ent soils and cli­mates. We have cre­at­ed two maps of each of our vine­yards to help our cus­tomers bet­ter under­stand how our wines were craft­ed. One ver­sion of the maps shows the var­i­ous plant­i­ngs of vari­etal clones and root­stocks, the oth­er ver­sion lists the final wine the grapes are sourced for. These maps were just updat­ed in Feb­ru­ary 2020.

Food & Wine: Best Winter Rosés

Tom and Steve Beck­men, the own­er and winemaker/​general man­ag­er, both say Rosé is their favorite wine and the wine they grav­i­tate towards no mat­ter the set­ting. Gen­er­al­ly speak­ing, how­ev­er, more Rosé is con­sumed dur­ing warmer months than dur­ing the win­ter, which was why we were so pleas­ant­ly sur­prised for our 2018 PMV Grenache Rosé to be includ­ed in Ray Isle’s lat­est arti­cle in Food & Wine mag­a­zine, 10 Pink Wines That Are Per­fect for Win­ter Nights.
