Some wineries pump alot of water out of neighboring salmon streams and flush agricultural chemicals back into those waterways - the results are devastating to developing salmon and other wildlife. Terra Savia, located in Hopland, CA, is different. They are committed to protecting our water resources and the wildlife surrounding their vineyards, setting a standard of excellence (in philosophy and taste) we hope others will follow.

Wild salmon spawn in cold rivers and streams, migrate through estuaries (where freshwater meets the ocean), grow up in the ocean, and then return to their home streams to spawn and die. Farm raised salmon do not complete this life cycle -- salmon farms harm the environment and produce fish that are less healthful (and perhaps harmful) for you.
We'll be serving the salmon-friendly wines of Terra Savia. Produced from grapes grown locally and in ways that respect the needs of the surrounding watershed, these wines demonstrate that truly fine wine is an experience in harmony. And wait till you taste that harmony... Wow!
