A SUSTAINABLE, SOUTHERN OREGON STANDOUT

Cowhorn Vineyard & Garden grows grape varietals that are historically associated with the Rhône River wine region of France: Syrah and Grenache for red wine, and Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne for white wine. All of Cowhorn Vineyard & Garden's wines are made with 100% estate-grown fruit from 25 planted acres, receiving more than 100 90+ scores over the years.

A west-coast wine haven: our latitude is a bit lower than the Rhône, and the growing season is shorter. However, our arid river-side bench-land made of porous rocky soils creates a growing environment ideal for the chosen varietals.

FARMING FOR THE FUTURE

Cowhorn is certified as a Biodynamic® farm and winery.

What is Biodynamic Winemaking?

Biodynamic agriculture (some referring to it as organics 2.0), is a sustainable, holistic approach to farming that utilizes organic, locally sourced materials for fertilizing and maintaining overall soil health. Its practices and farming methods focus on creating healthy soil by restoring and enhancing ecological harmony and avoiding the use of chemical fertilizers.

There are only a few certified Biodynamic vineyards in the U.S., and even fewer certified wineries. Our nature-focused farming and winemaking contribute to the many dimensions of richness and complexity in our wine.
