Most importantly, it is a group of producers that include some top quality wineries making very exciting wines. (Friday January 11th, 2019 — Forbes)

Winemakers over the moon with biodynamic viticulture Biodynamic methods - sometimes described as "organic-plus" - are based on writings by Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner. As well as excluding chemicals, the focus is on soil improvement - hence the cow horn and other homeopathic enhancers - as well as working the vines when the plants and conditions are ready, rather than to human schedules. An estimated 15 per cent of European wine production is biodynamic, with the US not too far behind, while it is also growing in Australia, where about 50 wineries have adopted it.

Seven Stars Farm Sets the Standard for Organic Farming Seven Stars Farm has its origins with philanthropists Mabel Pew Myrin and husband Alarik Myrin. In 1939, they purchased 1,000 acres of farmland northwest of Phoenixville, naming it Kimberton Farms. Followers of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, the father of biodynamic farming, they wanted to put into practice both his agriculture methods and his Waldorf approach to education. Next door to the farm, they established the Kimberton Waldorf School, which is still in operation. The property was eventually divided between the school and Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, a farming, gardening and handcrafting community that caters to adults with developmental disabilities.

Half-science, half-mysticism, the world of biodynamic wine is weird and wonderful Organic, biodynamic and natural wines are increasingly apparent on menus across London's restaurants and wine bars, though most customers are unaware of the distinctions between them. Organics are grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, and with far fewer chemicals, colourings and preservatives than conventional wines. On organic vineyards farmers will avoid intervention, opting instead to plant a diverse selection of plants and vegetables to attract wildlife that naturally help keep the vines disease and pest-free. At Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte in Bordeaux, they lace the soil with butterfly-attracting pheromones. (Saturday July 7th, 2018 — City A.M. - London, UK)
