Biodynamic Wine

Biodynamic wine is crafted using agricultural methods rooted in the principles of biodynamic farming, a system established by Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner in the early 20th century. This farming philosophy views the farm as a self-sustaining ecosystem.

Like organic farming, biodynamic farming avoids synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilisers, preferring natural techniques for managing soil fertility and pest control.

Central to biodynamic farming is fostering biodiversity, promoting a diverse array of plants and animals within and around the vineyard. This involves practices such as planting cover crops, maintaining hedgerows, and preserving natural habitats to support beneficial insects, birds, and wildlife.

Livestock may also play a role in managing weeds and pests through grazing and providing natural fertiliser.

Soil health and fertility are paramount in biodynamic farming. Techniques such as composting, herbal preparations, and biodynamic compost are used to improve soil structure, enhance microbial activity, and increase nutrient availability.

A unique aspect of biodynamic farming is its consideration of cosmic influences. Planting and harvesting calendars are aligned with lunar and planetary cycles, reflecting a holistic approach to agricultural planning.

Wines that adhere to specific standards, often set by organisations like Demeter International, can receive certification as biodynamic. While sharing similarities with organic farming, biodynamic practices incorporate additional spiritual and holistic elements that some believe contribute to the overall excellence and vibrancy of the vineyard and its wines.
