La Clarine Farm Chardonnay 2019
Founded in 2001, La Clarine Farm has been farmed with totally biodynamic principles and was even certified for a while. Most recently, though, Beckmeyer has moved on to an even more do-nothing approach described by Japanese philosopher-farmer Manosoba Fukuoka. It still encompasses the ideas of biodynamic farming but without the belief that farmers need to always ‘do’ things to make the plants grow. With production rarely exceeding 70 cases of any one wine, La Clarine Farms is a testament to the surprises you can find in wines simply marked ‘domestic’.
