Organic, Biodynamic & Reasoned Viticulture
What are the key features and benefits?
Presented by Roger Bohmrich MW
There is growing worldwide awareness of the need for sustainable viticultural practices. In France, the most widely accepted strategy is termed la lutte raisonnée, a flexible approach implying reduced use of chemicals, yet without specific criteria. Vineyards employing organic cultivation or la culture biologique are increasing yet remain limited as a share of the total. Growers who claim “bio” status on their labels are subject to official standards and certification. Biodynamic winegrowing, or la biodynamie, combines organic methods with faith-based beliefs. This seminar examines each of these approaches, outlining their features and assessing their costs and benefits.
