Wine production has always had a special relationship with the Earth and its natural resources. However, the approach to cultivating grapes and producing wine has been a subject of dynamic transformation over the years. Recently, one noticeable trend in this space has been the shift towards more sustainable, organic, and biodynamic practices. At Wine Affairs, we're passionate about connecting our customers with this greener side of wine.
Organic wines are made from grapes that have been grown without the use of artificial or synthetic chemicals, such as herbicides and pesticides. Instead, vintners employ methods like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control to maintain vine health and manage diseases.
Biodynamic wines take this a step further, incorporating holistic farming practices that view the vineyard as a self-sustaining ecosystem. This approach, inspired by the teachings of Rudolf Steiner, takes into account the lunar calendar and astrological influences and includes unique preparations of various plant, animal, and mineral substances.
Both organic and biodynamic wines aim to lower the environmental impact and create a product that is more in tune with nature. While the taste of organic and biodynamic wines is subjective, proponents believe that these wines express a purer, more authentic expression of the terroir, the unique characteristics of the place where the grapes are grown.
At Wine Affairs, we're proud to offer an array of organic and biodynamic wines for those seeking a more sustainable sip. Come explore the variety of tastes and stories these wines have to offer. For more information, contact us at (914) 472-2671 or visit our website www.wineaffairsnyc.com.
