HOW A CSA WORKS A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a system in which community members purchase a “share" at the beginning of a growing season. In return, the member receives a share of the harvest, in this case finished wine. A CSA is a way for consumers to share in the bounty of a farm, or in our case a vineyard, as well as take some of the burden of risk off the farm. Members commit to buying two cases of wine either at one time or in 3 pickups of 8 bottles on pre-established dates. This helps us plan for the season, provide a bit of working capital throughout the year and maintain sustainability of the vineyard.
