Biodynamic Wine

Biodynamic Wine

Biodynamic wine is grounded in a farming system that views the farm or vineyard as a single organism. This ecosystem or one complete farm holding concept is not new but has been practiced since farming began, with each part of the farm or vineyard contributing to the next. 

The planting sowing and reaping along with the other practices are carried out according to the lunar calendar when the planets and the gravitational forces they exert according to their position in the universe at a certain time of the year influence the plants on the Earth, connecting everything in the system. In other words, it's a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming. 

So wines made using this approach expresses the true essence of the vineyard where they are produced and shows this in the vibrancy and vitality of the wine.  This is true Terroir.
