In 2007, Martin Pohl and his then partners discovered Horne Ranch, the home of Beaver Creek Vineyards. Their vision for a sustainable, organic, and biodynamic vineyards and winery was a symbiotic fit for the natural beauty and bounty of Horne Ranch. After careful planning and impeccable execution, the existing vineyards were meticulously converted to organic and biodynamic farming practices. The CCOF certification was received in 2009 and in 2010 the Demeter Biodynamic certification followed. As part of the Biodynamic practices Beaver Creek became home to a herd of sheep that grazed and fertilized the vineyards. Over the years a donkey, a lama, and alpaca, chickens, bees, olives trees, walnut trees, and gardens all contributed to the biodiversity of the land at Beaver Creek. In 2012, Martin Pohl became the sole grape grower and vintner and in 2021 the sole proprietor.
Originally from the Czech Republic, Martin brings old world techniques to modern day wine making. His passion and dedication to organic and biodynamic living are embodied in his farming and winemaking. Martin is devoted to regenerative agriculture and caring for the environment while creating a wine that is healthy and high vibrational. In 2022 Martin and his wife/business partner, Tara, left the land of Beaver Creek Vineyards. They remain in Lake County and continue crafting Beaver Creek and Martin Pohl Wines with a tasting room in the heart of Middletown and a winery just minutes away.
