A Toast to Biodynamic Wine
Biodynamic wines are crafted using the principles of biodynamic agriculture. In recent years, the practice of biodynamics in viticulture – or grape growing – has become popular, especially in Europe.
Biodynamic agriculture stems from the concepts and practices of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) whose now famous “Agriculture Course” created in 1924 predated the organic movement. The principles and practices of biodynamics are based on his philosophy, called anthroposophy, which includes understanding the ecology energy, and spirituality of nature.
Grape growers using biodynamic methods see immediate improvements in the health of their vineyards. It is also apparent in their finished product – biodynamic wines possess stronger, clearer, and more vibrant tastes as a result of this earth-friendly method.
With biodynamics, intention, attention to detail, and inner attitude are valued as part of mastering excellence in grape growing and wine making. And as with organic methods, biodynamics is kinder to the environment, producing a higher quality product that you can feel good about enjoying.
