Biodynamic wine is produced with a farming framework that views

the farm or vineyard as one complete organism. The ecosystem

functions as a whole, with each portion of the farm or vineyard

contributing to the next. The idea is to create a self-sustaining

system. Biodynamic uses traditional farming techniques and a

prescribed list of biological or natural “preparations”, whilst

acknowledging and working with universal or cosmic forces that

are at play in the farming environment. Chemical fertilizers and

pesticides are forbidden for the sake of soil fertility. A range of

animals live on the soil and fertilize it, creating a rich, fertile

environment for the vines to grow in. Biodynamic farming also

seeks sustainability, leaving the land in as good or better shape as


they found it for future generations.
