Please join Jean-Charles Boisset for an evening of good cheer and good deeds… a fundraiser for Demeter USA and their critically important Biodynamic Farmer Education Initiative. Enjoy a delicious Biodynamic farm-to-table feast prepared with ingredients from our winery garden by celebrated chef and Boisset Culinary Director Victor Scargle. The evening’s festivities include both silent and very live auction items, featuring incredible Biodynamic wines, products, and experiences. Live music by Sonoma County’s favorite band the Cahoots, playing their own blend of “Sonomacana” country blues and rockabilly. And of course featuring the award wines of DeLoach Vineyards, Buena Vista Winer and Raymond Vineyards.
Demeter USA, the non-profit certifier of Biodynamic farms and products, is a member of Demeter International, the oldest ecological certification organization in the world. Biodynamic agriculture is not just the pinnacle of sustainable farming, it represents a solution for climate change. Biodynamic farming results in food and wine that is healthy and delicious. Its practice is good for the farm, for the farmer, for our communities, and for our precious planet.
The Demeter Biodynamic Education Initiative supports the education of farmers and others to expand the practice of Biodynamic agriculture, and the production of Biodynamic food and wine, across the country. Last year, Demeter increased Biodynamic acreage by more than 16% to 22,000 acres, advised more than 350 farmers and brands, and hosted 20 farmer workshops that provided Biodynamic training for 1,155 farmers. Your support of this work is vitally important for the quality of our farms, our food, and our planet. Thank you for joining with Boisset and Demeter in our vision to help heal the planet through agriculture.
