Biodynamic Wines

Biodynamic is a fast expanding and fascinating method of winemaking. Based on the work of Rudolf Steiner in 1924… O god we’re losing you, quick, make a joke about the ‘6-Million Dollar Man.’ Wait he was bionic… Anyway, biodynamic wine production is genuinely fascinating. It’s a bit like organic wine making; restricting herbicide and pesticide use, but they also complete particular viticultural procedures in accordance with lunar cycles and prepare vineyard soils and compost by doing things, such as burying manure in cow horns, underground. Sounds kind of weird, right? We thought the same, at first, but the funny thing is, time and time again, in blind tastings when two similar wines have gone head-to-head, the biodynamic wine has been judged to be the better wine. Whether it’s the cow horns or simply that wine makers are just more involved, biodynamics seem to work. Give one a try, Rudolf Steiner believes in you!
