World’s First Regenerative Viticulture Case Study – Robert Hall Winery

In an indus­try first, O’Neill Vint­ners & Dis­tillers, through its Paso Rob­les-based Robert Hall Win­ery, will ini­ti­ate a com­par­a­tive tri­al for the wider wine com­mu­ni­ty to learn about regen­er­a­tive farm­ing with organ­ic and bio­dy­nam­ic farm­ing tech­niques, com­par­ing the results with con­ven­tion­al­ly farmed vine­yards. The tri­al will be led by Robert Hall Winery’s Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Caine Thomp­son with VP of Viti­cul­ture and Wine­mak­ing Mar­ty Spate, while also bring­ing in world renowned bio­dy­nam­ic con­sul­tant Philippe Armenier.

For more than 30 years, Arme­nier has been car­ry­ing on a love affair with bio­dy­nam­ic farm­ing. His family’s famed Domaine de Mar­coux in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, France, was the first vine­yard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape to con­vert to bio­dy­nam­ics. Arme­nier now pas­sion­ate­ly shares the phi­los­o­phy of bio­dy­nam­ics with the world. Using these tech­niques at Domaine de Mar­coux, the win­ery soared to new heights. Robert Park­er once called the win­ery one of the great­est wine estates in the world pro­filed in my book.”
