Farmhouse is a collection of easy-drinking wines that are made naturally, showcase light-weight glass (reduces carbon footprint) and most importantly, taste great. The current line-up includes a Red and a White wine.
Farmhouse wines are named in honor of the schoolhouse at the Cline Family’s Green String Farm in Petaluma, California, where students from around the globe have come to learn the Green String method of sustainable farming. Directed by Bobby Cannard, for decades considered one of the leaders of the Northern California sustainable farming movement and longtime farmer for Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse restaurant, the Green String method advocates the long-term health and well-being of the planet. Green String farming practices forgo the use of herbicides, pesticides and other harmful chemicals, relying instead on the use of friendly insects to control pests. Over 1500 sheep and 500 goats are used to remove harmful weeds from the vineyards and compost tea is used to stimulate the biology of the soil. “For years we’ve been teaching at the Green String farm that happy plants make happy people, and this mentality carries through in each bottle of Farmhouse wine,” says Bobby Cannard.
“It’s easy to feel good drinking Farmhouse wines,” says Fred Cline. “We wanted to create a wine that people could easily open and share with friends and family knowing that the winery is committed to sustainability, quality and affordability.” The wines are made by Charlie Tsegeletos, Director of Winemaking at Cline Cellars. He’s been crafting award-winning wines in Sonoma County for over 30 years. Charlies’ winemaking style reflects minimal handling allowing each blend and vintage to tell its story in the glass.
