We will pour 5 wines from around the world all farmed and produced under the strict Biodynamic Practices.This method of farming was developed and championed by Roudolph Steiner in the early part of the 20th century. It takes organics to the next level, incorporating a oneness with the crop and earth in a near religious fashion. The wines poured will all express a sense of place and unique character that often go hand in hand with Biodynamic farming.
