Hyde Vineyard is cultivated to minimize compaction of the soil, thus encouraging a healthy microbial ecosystem and a naturally balanced substructure for the vine roots. Sustainably farmed, the vines flourish in a naturally balanced environment that allows a certain amount of vine disease to occur. Though seemingly counter-intuitive, the great growths of France have long understood that a certain amount of disease is not only natural, but provides assistance in naturally stressing the vine into producing its finest wines. By avoiding chemical fertilizers and herbicides, biodiversity flourishes in the soil and allows the vines to naturally repel most disease through the presence of beneficial organisms and bacteria. In substitute of utilizing pesticides, Hyde Vineyard plants insectary flowers throughout the vineyard to fight intrusive pests.
