Korbel Garden Showcases The Beauty Of Sustainability

GUERNEVILLE (RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY), Calif., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Korbel Champagne Cellars' spectacular garden, which opens on Tuesday, April 16 th for the 2013 season, is a feast for the senses. Towering redwoods and the historic circa 1882 Korbel House provide the backdrop for a tapestry of colorful plantings, including 250 rose varieties. One of Sonoma County's top visitor destinations, Korbel Garden dazzles visitors while quietly showcasing some of the sustainable practices Korbel Champagne Cellars uses in its vineyards.

The reason for Korbel Garden's popularity is simple: it is truly beautiful. Winding footpaths lead to vibrant plantings of coleus, pincushion plants, agapanthus, irises, dahlias and – of course – roses, all framed by box hedges, clematis, plume poppies and a 30-foot tall climbing hydrangea. Many travelers – both day-trippers and vacationers – make Korbel Garden the centerpiece of a visit to Korbel Champagne Cellars. In addition to taking in the garden, they sample Korbel California champagnes and discover rare Korbel bottlings in the tasting room, tour the historic champagne cellars and enjoy lunch at the gourmet delicatessen.

A range of sustainable cultivation techniques contribute to the beauty of Korbel Garden. Rich, natural compost made from vineyard waste and worked into the garden beds produces strong plants and big, brilliant blooms. Low-flow drip irrigation, calibrated to each planting and operated only at night, reduces water and energy use. Integrated pest management with beneficial bugs and nematodes eliminates dependence on chemical pesticides. Inclusion of drought-resistant native California plants adds to the garden's rich palette while reducing water consumption. Most of these techniques and many more are also utilized in Korbel's vineyards, resulting in a naturally healthy environment for the vines.

From opening day, April 16 th through mid-October, free guided tours of Korbel Garden are offered Tuesday through Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Additional information regarding Korbel Garden and Korbel Champagne Cellars is available by telephone at 707/824-7000 and via the internet at www.korbel.com.

Established in 1882, Korbel Champagne Cellars produces America's most popular methode champenoise champagne. Korbel is located on River Road near Guerneville, California, 14 miles west of Highway 101.
