Riesling Rules Book

Riesling and Biodynamie

Biodynamic principles are quite applicable to Riesling because Riesling wines are typically quite connected to their place of origin. Biodynamicists consider the farm as an organism and they do not use any pesticides, herbicides or chemicals (organic or synthetic), relying instead on the Biodynamic preparations (essentially a form of viticultural homeopathy), and farming to the Biodynamic calendar – harmonizing the agricultural activities with the dominant aspect of the plant on a given day.
