But what is biodynamic wine? We’ll explain shortly
Biodynamic wine is a perfect balance between nature and mankind, based on the anthroposophical philosophy by Rudolf Steiner.
It is a holistic way of growing wine. They revitalize the ground to develop a perfect humus, the conditions for the plant are adjusted due to the weather circumstances and the position of the moon and stars. The whole process is in respect of nature, which means free of chemicals and pesticides.
Every grape is selected manually, and the vinification is based on natural fermentation, without adding any chemicals, and low to zero sulphites
Just the way Bacchus intended it to be.
This Wine week is organized by Rosalie van Velsen & Hans Mayer in collaboration with Novanta90.
Hans And Rosalie great both friends, nature-lovers, dreamers, and founders of Un Po’ Di Pui Italian wine importers in the Netherlands.
Rosalie turned valley girl, has the wind in her hair and a constant addictive smile on her face. Hans was raised in the countryside, has a goat pet-friend called Petronella, and always prefers to walk barefoot.
