Since its inception in the early 1990’s, Silver Thread has been a leader in sustainable viticulture in the Finger Lakes. Visit our vineyard during the October 2018 Riesling harvest to see our holistic practices in action. Fostering a healthy, living soil is the cornerstone of our approach, so our vineyard is no-till and herbicide-free. Integrated pest management, bio-intensive farming and organic practices are used to control diseases. For more information, visit our vineyard page or our sustainability page.
