How is biodynamic wine made?

Biodynamic wine is a type of wine produced following the principles of biodynamics, an agricultural approach based on the theory that the earth, plants and animals are interconnected and that agriculture must be sustainable and respectful of the environment.

To produce biodynamic wine, the following steps are followed:

  1. Planning: the wine production process is planned, taking into account the lunar calendar and the phases of the moon.

  2. Biodynamic preparations: herbal and mineral preparations are used, used to prepare the soil and improve plant health.

  3. Composting: organic compost is produced using animal manure, plant remains and biodynamic preparations.

  4. Pest control: Natural methods are used to control pests, such as the use of plants that repel insects or the use of traps.

  5. Harvest: the grapes are harvested during the correct lunar phase, generally during the waning moon.

  6. Fermentation: the fermentation of the must occurs naturally, without the addition of yeasts.

  7. Aging: the wine is aged in wooden barrels or glass bottles.

In summary, the biodynamic wine production process is based on sustainability, soil and plant health, respect for nature and the use of natural methods to produce wine.
