- except for the wines "Demeter" certified (see below), in technical terms it would be more correct to speak of "wine from biodynamic agriculture" rather than "biodynamic wines";
- in Europe the production of wine obtained from grapes grown in biodynamic farming regime is regulated by the same laws governing the production of conventional wines;
- in Europe, the certification of "biodynamic wine" or "wine made with grapes from biodynamic vineyards", is a voluntary act.
Numerous wine producers employ biodynamic viticulture techniques in order to:
- cultivating the vineyard, as far as possible, according to the best natural agriculture teachings;
- limit adjuvants and additives, sulfites including, in wine-making;
- make wines that stand out for their originality and authenticity.
There is no doubt that the wines produced by those farmers, to use the current language, are "biodynamic wines".
However, if we talk about a system of objective rules and formal checks conducted by independent third parties, for what we know, there is only one Production Regulations to which the European wine producers can choose to comply in order to produce "biodynamic wine". This Production Regulations is the "Demeter".
It is worth to highlight that the Demeter rules system is, in many ways, more severe than that imposed by European laws governing the production of organic wine. To be more precise, a biodynamic wine that exposes the Demeter logomust beat least a "certified organic wine."
Sensory notes and prices of biodynamic wines (Demeter certified and not) to buy online are into the pages dedicated to to some wines. Some tasting experiences shared by those who have tasted biodynamic wine, are available also among the comments from our customers.
