Biodynamic wines represent the next stage of organic farming. The goal of biodynamic winemaking is, overall, to rehabilitate, intensify and revitalise the organic life of the vine. Winemakers who practice biodynamic agriculture try to strengthen the exchanges between the plant and its environment in order to cultivate better grapes and consequentially produce better wines. Biodynamic practices are carried out with the aim to increase the vitality and resistance of the plants by enhancing the natural exchange between the soil and the plant root, between the sky and the leaves. The four natural elements (water, earth, air, fire) are used optimally to help the vine grow and express its terroir as best possible.
There are no European regulations for biodynamic wines. There are two important certifying bodies regulating the production of biodynamic wines: Demeter and Biodyvin. Both organizations require that the wines first be produced by means of organic farming.
