Biodynamic wine is made according to a set of farming practices that views the vineyard as one organism and aims to create a self-sustained system without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides. Farm animals such as ducks, horses and sheep live in and around the vineyards to naturally fertilise the soils, creating a rich and fertile environment for the wines to grow in. The aim of biodynamic farming is to encourage sustainability of the land to leave the land in as good or better shape for future generations. To make shopping for biodynamically certified wines easy, we have labelled the wines ‘BIO’.
