Biodynamic wines are crafted from grapes that are cultivated through biodynamic farming methods. Biodynamic agriculture is a holistic and sustainable approach to farming that seeks to maintain a balance between the health of the soil, plants, animals, and humans. Biodynamic farming practices generally involve utilizing natural preparations and composts to nourish the soil, and the timing of planting, pruning, and harvesting is guided by the cycles of astronomical and astrological events. Biodynamic winemakers also tend to intervene minimally in the cellar, utilizing wild yeast for fermentation and avoiding additives and filtering agents.
At the core of biodynamic wine lies a farming system that perceives the vineyard or farm as a single organism. This system, where each part of the farm contributes to the next, has been employed since the inception of farming. The planting, sowing, and harvesting, as well as other farming practices, are carried out based on the lunar calendar, where the planets and their gravitational forces, according to their positions in the universe at a particular time of the year, influence the plants on Earth. This connection creates a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming.
Wines made utilizing biodynamic farming methods communicate the genuine character of the vineyard where they are produced, evident in the vibrancy and liveliness of the wine. This epitomizes Terroir. All of our Biodynamic Wines are organic and excellent examples of the diverse regions in which they are grown.
