"RESPECT FOR NATURE"
Biodynamic agriculture is a special form of organic farming. It was developed in 1920 by the Austrian anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner.
The basis are traditional methods in which animal husbandry and mixed culture form the central aspect of management. Even more than in organic farming, the focus is on prevention rather than treatment. The farm is seen as an organism. People, animals, plants and the soil live in harmony with nature.
“It's time to wake up - the nature doesn't need chemistry to grow! Just a respectful coexistence! A give and take ”
The biodynamic approach is becoming increasingly popular in the wine industry. “Rightly! :) ”
In order to stimulate microbial life, natural plant-based preparations (yarrow, chamomile, nettle, etc.) and minerals (quartz) are used as fertilizers. The holistic approach sees the operation as part of the comprehensive solar system in which large celestial bodies exert considerable forces on each other (light, gravity, gravitation, etc.). These external factors have a decisive effect on life on our earth and this includes biodynamics.
Biodynamics continues in the cellar and the extra effort in the vineyard turns out to be a profit. The winemaker accompanies and controls the development of the Biodynamic wine. The physical or chemical intervention, as well as influencing the fermentation with pure yeast are not allowed. The healthier the vines, the better the harvested grapes and the less work is necessary in the cellar. This creates quality wines with a deep, complex taste that is shaped by the terroir. Uncompromised wines not grown in the laboratory!
All the work pays off in terms of taste: diverse, lively, natural, extraordinary and close to nature - BÄM - Enjoy! " "We are celebrating Biodynamic wines" and looking forward to the variety of flavors that lie ahead!
Biodynamic wines are subject to even stricter requirements than organic or ecological wines and are made by independent private organizations such as DEMETER, RESPECT BIODYN or ECOVIN controlled and certified.
For us, the focus is on the work of the Winemaker in the foreground and not the certification. That is why we also have micro wineries that do not have a seal but still work according to biodynamic principles.
