What are biodynamic wines ?
The biodynamic practice of farming dates back centuries. This practice is also constant across all countries and doesn’t change unlike some methods of producing wine. So, in a sense the production methods of biodynamic wine are universal.
The biodynamic practice of farming refers to the method that uses the influence of astronomy and the surrounding environment to help them interact with the vines grown. This then affects the health of the vine and the grapes that are grown in that place.
Biodynamic practices are more holistic and they require the person who is growing the vines to have a mindset that benefits the health of the vines and grapes. The Earth, the Sun, and the Moon are very important factors in this practice as it involves connecting them all to grow grapes in the most optimal way.
All practices to make biodynamic wine such as planting, harvesting, and pruning are all determined by the lunar cycles and the position of different planets and the sun.
