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.

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. The calendar breaks down each day as a fruit, flower, leaf, or root day, the four main components of a plant. We have added a symbol to the top of our website to easily show you the type of day.

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.
