Have you already read the article on organic wines?
I am sure of that, I had no doubts;)
In this article we talk about the BIODYNAMIC…
Eh? What is biodynamic? A long time ago drinking wine was easier..
Have you never heard about biodynamic?
Let’s start with the definition, that I really love, on the wikipedia page:
“Biodynamic agriculture is a form of alternative agriculture very similar to organic farming, but it includes various esoteric concepts drawn from the ideas of Rudolf Steiner(1861–1925). Initially developed in 1924, it was the first of the organic agriculture movements. It treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives!”
Does it seem easy, right?
Biodynamic wine is the wine obtained from biodynamic agriculture. In the field you must respect some rules. Biodynamic agriculture aims to obtain a fruit that can naturally express the characteristics of the soil, precisely because the soil is in extreme harmony with the plant, the environment and the animals.
In which way?
Considering the astral influence on plants; moreover it is forbidden to use any chemical substance in the field, all to establish the right connections between the system and the environment.
The use of tractor is very limited and many manual techniques are used, such as green manure. Biodynamic compounds that promote the formation of humus can be used.
How these compounds are made?
They are composed of herbs and minerals. The most famous is the PREPARATION 500, consisting of cow manure put into a horn and left to ferment under the ground throughout the winter.
