Wine Wisdoms #47: Biodynamic Wines, What’s the Story?

Biodynamic Farming

In the past decade we’ve seen an increasing number of biodynamic wines in the marketplace. A biodynamic wine is entirely different than an organic wine. Wine that is made in a biodynamic fashion incorporates various methods of vineyard preparation that specifically correlate to the phases of the moon and seasons of the year.

The methods can include anything from grounding quartz and flowers into animal skulls and horns to adding tea to the compost.

As strange as the practices may sound, many wineries swear by biodynamic agriculture. Many argue that biodynamic wines are more terroir-driven and of higher quality.  There are now hundreds of biodynamic wine producers all over the world, and the list is growing.

The Demeter Association provides biodynamic certification to wineries that fit its criteria.
