Dinner idea:

About DeLoach Vineyards:

http://www.deloachvineyards.com/our-philosophy/organic-and-biodynamic-farming/

"...In July 2008 we were awarded our organic certification by the CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers). We also committed ourselves to the application of biodynamics, beginning with the conversion of 17 acres of estate vineyards from sustainable to biodynamic farming methods, which involves the use of cover crops, the application of biodynamic specific preparations and composts, and the maintenance of biodiversity within the estate. In December 2009, Demeter granted us our biodynamic certification for both our estate vineyards and 1-acre garden. ..."
