Organic and Biodynamic
Organics and the environment are key issues for wine, though they are not often totally understood.
Organic wines are made from grapes which are cultivated without using artificial fungicides, herbicides or fertilizers. The soils are free from man made products and instead rely on natural controls, like cover crops or natural predators. There are 2 types of producer, those who are certified organic and those who are practising organic as certification can sometimes be exhausting and costly.
Biodynamic wines go one step further than organics by looking at the vineyard within the context of the larger environment. Lunar cycles, earth rhythms, homeopathic sprays and herbal preparations are used along with estate-made composts. By employing biodynamic principles the grower is aiming to harmonise the rhythm of the vine with its capacity to bear fruit. More about biodynamic wine
