Mythopia

Mythopia sounds like a mythical land; one where nature and agriculture are not paradoxical. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once wrote, ⁣

​“In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it, and over it.” ⁣

Planting a vineyard, just like most forms of agriculture, is inherently unnatural, because it creates a monocultural system.​ However, with care, it is possible to make a vineyard a great home for nature to thrive. There is perhaps nobody who has demonstrated this to the extent that Hans-Peter and Romaine Schmidt have with their vineyards in the Swiss Alps and with Hans-Peter’s work with biochar at the Ithaka Institute. The wine that is born from these vineyards is named Mythopia; from the Greek mythos (tales) and topos (location), while also nodding to Utopia; My Utopia.
