Aum Cellars

 We are a privately owned winery dedicated in producing handcrafted, small lot, probiotic wine elixirs.  

 

 

Philosophy:  Primordial viticulture:  We feed the soils and let the soils feed the vines.  Feeding of the soils requires sheep to tend to the vineyard in the winter by keeping weeds at bay while naturally cultivating and adding much needed micro biological ingredients back into the soil.  We also have our chickens feeding under the vine rows throughout the year, keeping balance to insect populations, while adding more biology to soils.  owl boxes, blue bird boxes and insectaries help form greater biodiversity to ensure a healthier ecology surrounding the vineyard

Native Fermentations: All of our wines are natively fermented and non filtered.  Using native yeasts in fermentation is the only way to truly represent the micro biology of the vineyard soil and ecology of the vineyard site.
