The ladybug is a natural predator that feeds on insects harmful to plants. "Natural predation" is just one of our many sustainable vineyard practices that eliminates the need for synthetic pesticides.

Shanken’s Impact Newsletter, 2016
“A real winner, Predator’s cuvée of 17,000 cases, aged in French and American oak, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, and certainly smells and tastes like it. Attractive aromatics of licorice, red and black fruits and spice box are all present in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, a tasty, medium-bodied, supple-textured wine. It should drink nicely for another 2-3 years.”
