biodynamic viticulture

Definition

Wine

  • a holistic approach to growing vines, derived from the work of Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner, that takes into consideration all of nature’s forces that affect the health and growth of the plants. Planting, harvesting and bottling are timed to coincide with certain positions of the planets, and only natural preparations may be used to nurture the soil and vines. Biodynamie, as it is known in France, is growing in popularity in almost every wine-producing region of the world.
