Echo Bay Vineyard was born out of a desire to create a multi-generational, family-run winery with a holistic and biodiverse approach to farming. We follow organic and biodynamic practices to ensure a healthy ecosystem in the vineyard and a minimal intervention approach to winemaking. Wild yeast ferments are encouraged as part of our intention of creating wines that speak of place.
