Ivo Jeramaz |Winemaker and Vice President of Vineyards & Production at Grgich Hills Estate

Ivo was born in Croatia to a family of grape growers and as boy he assisted in making wine for his family’s enjoyment. However, he didn’t plan on becoming a winemaker. Ivo earned a master’s of science degree in engineering from the University of Zagreb and dreamed of coming to California to work as an engineer. In 1986, with the help of his uncle, Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, Ivo followed his dream and came to Napa Valley. He quickly fell in love with the scenic beauty of the area and became fascinated with wine making. Ivo decided on a career change and Mike immediately put him to work washing barrels. During his almost-three decades at Grgich Hills Ivo has worked his way up in responsibility, learning the classic style and art of winemaking from his uncle, supported by the tools of science and technology. “There’s nothing in the winery or vineyard that I haven’t done, not just for one day, but really worked at it,” he explains.

MARQUEE ADDRESS: Mimi Casteel

Vineyard manager and winemaker for Hope Well WineMimi Casteel is an incredibly passionate voice and example for this new era of regenerative carbon farming. Mimi is world-renowned for her vision of transformative viticulture, her approachable communication of that vision, and her on the ground examples of how to produce expressive wines from vibrant, healthy, carbon-rich soils in vineyards actively cultivating plant and animal diversity.

 

A 2019 Punch article noted, “To her, regenerative farming is the Manhattan Project of our time.

‘We built nuclear bombs when we felt threatened. That was a very short, very intense effort of the best minds. With a fraction of that, we could transition 400 million acres in less than a decade and that would change… everything.’”

Living Room Salon:
The True Value of Regenerative Agriculture

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has named “nature-based solutions,” including carbon farming, as one of the top five solutions to climate change. Grape growers have a proactive role they can play in both building more resilient vineyards and mitigating climate change. Practices like cover crops, compost, and conservation tillage build soil health, water and nutrient retention and plant delivery, resiliency to drought and high heat AND they store more carbon in the soil.

During this Salon, freelance journalist, author and professor Mark Gudgel will moderate a conversation with Kelly Mulville of Paicines Ranch, Ivo Jeramaz with Grgich Estate, and Natalie Winkler from Salvestrin Winery about the soil microbiome and the underground brain of the vine. This powerhouse group will discuss decades of science, ongoing research, and their own experience with the benefits of expanding regenerative farming practices in the vineyard.

Buzz Cover Crop Seeds |  Rebecca Sweet

What’s the buzz about?

For decades we’ve known that cover crops improve soil fertility and break disease cycles. However, the list of benefits and uses just keeps growing: improved water infiltration, enhanced nutrient cycling, reduced soil compaction, better water holding capacity, weed suppression, nutrient cycling, water quality protection, excess N sequestration, erosion prevention, biodiversity enrichment, pest control, pollinator habitat support. All this and good looks too!

At Buzz Seeds we believe that all cover crop mixes should support pollinators. That’s why we design our mixes to maximize floral resources. We work closely with local natural resource experts to make sure that none of our seeds will become problem weeds.

Earthworks Biochar | Loni Austin

Earthworks Biochar is produced in the Sierra Mountains of California and is derived from woody biomass. Our biochar is used by farmers as a soil amendment due to its highly adsorbent properties. Biochar retains moisture and other nutrients that would otherwise leach out of root zones, improving crop yields, saving water and reducing fertilizer requirements. Biochar can help reclaim degraded soils and is also used in stormwater and wastewater systems to capture and filter pollutants out of water, including metals. Biochar has been found to have multiple uses beyond agriculture and Earthworks is just at the tip of learning about how biochar can be used in new markets like Green Building (ex. concrete, asphalt) and graphene production. The Earthworks Biochar product is Carbon Negative certified by the European Biochar Certificate (EBC) as a source of sequestered carbon and lab tested by the International Biochar Initiative (IBI) to ensure customers it is of the highest quality.

Napa Wildlife Rescue | Tom Clark

Napa Wildlife Rescue is the only organization permitted by the California Fish and Wildlife to rescue, rehabilitate and reunite/release wildlife in Napa County. Every year we work with well over a thousand orphaned or injured wildlife, with the goal of returning them to their wild lives. Barn owls are an excellent alternative to harmful rodenticides, otherwise known as rat poison. Rodenticides weaken the rodents before killing them, making them slow and attractive to predators. Then, when they are caught and eaten, the poison spreads and kills the predators of the rodents. This makes the rodent problem even worse, because there are fewer predators to control their population. Instead of using cruel poisons, whose effects spread beyond your intentions, they recommend an approach called Integrated Pest Management. This is a systemic way of thinking about pests in the environment, which addresses the root of the problem instead of only the symptoms.

One of the main resistances to phasing out glyphosate is increased labor and equipment costs. However, the costs of herbicides and fertilizers have risen dramatically, so increased labor demands can be offset by reduced supply chain purchases. 

In addition, leaders like Grgich Hills Estate have shown that regenerative organic farming can be cost-effective. According to an analysis by Brotemarkle Davis & Co. LLP accounting firm, the average annual per acre cost of vineyard management in the Napa Valley is $14,800, with $3,800 in depreciation. At Grgich, they spend $11,000 per acre, with only $1,300 in depreciation due to the longer life of their vineyards. 

Learn from regional leaders about the practical costs, benefits, and ROI of herbicide-free, organic, and regenerative vineyard management.

Join us for The Future of Water Workshop, to explore our water future, with highlights including a keynote from Peter Gleick, one of the world’s leading water experts (all guests will receive a copy of Peter’s most recent book, The Three Ages of Water) and Mimi Casteel, not only a viticulturist and winemaker, but also a forest ecologist with a vision for water resiliency.

Wine grape quality is closely tied to the right amount of water, at the right time. One of the most critical agricultural concerns with our changing climate, and more frequent & intense weather extremes, is precipitation and water availability. We’ve swung from historic drought to atmospheric rivers. Our community has huge swaths of unmanaged, unhealthy forests full of non-natives and overrun by firs, amplifying fire risk and undermining one of the most critical systems for groundwater recharge.

The good news is opportunities abound to optimize irrigation efficiency, and implement regenerative practices that improve soil health, water infiltration, and retention. A watershed coalition has also formed in Napa County to pilot and model creek & forest restoration for localized water resiliency and climate cooling. 

Come learn more on Thursday, May 23rd at 9:00am at @silveroakcellars.
