Organic / Biodynamic Wine

organic-biodynamic-header.jpg

What's the difference between organic and biodynamic wines?

Most are familiar with the term "organic" which is seen extensively in grocery stores. The biodynamic farming approach is from the 1920s and shares some similarities with organic, such as sustainable development and the lack of chemical use; however, biodynamics' holistic approach dictates that all planting and harvesting is done according to the biodynamic calendar, which has roots in ancient agricultural practices. As a result, the majority of our selection is sustainable, biodynamic/organic, with some carefully-selected naturals.
