Chasing Sheep At a Biodynamic Vineyard in Napa Valley

It’s probably true what they say: Chasing sheep is indeed best left to shepherds. You can see from the above that we had some trouble chasing the sheep at Joseph Phelps Vineyards — those fur balls can haul ass over the rows when they want, eh? — but Philippe Pessereau, director of vineyard operations at Joseph Phelps explained to us the role played by a herd of sheep in managing 150 acres of the ranch that have been converted to biodynamic practices.
