Vive La Différence


The differences between Conventional, Organic and Biodynamic Viticulture and Winemaking


As well as our vineyard being organic we also follow biodynamics which is an holistic approach that encourages a natural harmony between the earth, the vine and the cosmos as nature intended. We believe that this results in a more naturally healthy bio-diverse and sustainable vineyard, producing better quality fruit and ultimately better quality wine, with a unique sense of place or terroir.

Most of us understand the basic differences between conventional and organic farming but the practice of biodynamic viticulture and winemaking is not widely understood and can even seem a bit crazy. However many famous wine estates have adopted biodynamic principles including Coulee de Serrant, Domaine de Romanee Conti, Domaine Laflaive, Beaux Freres in Oragon and Henschke in Australia. In Burgundy alone there are more than fifty biodynamic vineyards.

Follow this link for more details about the differences between conventional, organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking. It is not definitive but will hopefully provide an insight as to the reasons why biodynamic viticulture and winemaking is becoming ever more popular.
