750Daily: Farming by Fukuoka

by TomHill » Wed Jul 28, 2021 1:50 pm

Interesting article in 750Daily today about wine growers who are playing around w/ farming grapevines by neglect:
https://daily.sevenfifty.com/can-do-nothing-farming-produce-quality-wine/,
or Fukuoka as developed in Japan in the '70's.
One thing new is that some of these growers want to also make wine by Fukuoka. I'm not sure exactly what that
means, though. Seems like a dead-end to me. Like "natural" winemaking, it probably means whatever you want it to mean.
The article suggests that this is cutting edge viticulture and that success is by no means assured. This is nonsense. EmilioCastelli
has been farming by Fukuoka in his GreenVlly Nebbiolo vnyd ever since it was established yrs ago. Whether it's a "success" or not
(I would assume it is) begs the question. But the quality of his Nebbiolo, one of the best in all Calif, cannot be disputed.
