Earth – one of the four classical elements from ancient Greek science and philosophy – represents matter and the terrestrial world. It was thought to be the heaviest element and all earth-laden substances would fall quickly straight down toward the center of the cosmos. Earth also represents the planet Earth, the seasons, fertility and abundant crops and many Greek and Roman goddesses represented these features of Earth. On this Earth Day, we are reminded of the purity and wholeness of nature and our responsibility to care for our planet. We take this to heart at 4 Elements Winery and consider sustainability in everything we do. And we hope that gets expressed in the purity of our wine. Happy Earth Day!
