Mini Clinic on Biodynamic and Organic Wines

Our 30-Minute (or So) Wine Clinic on the Basics of Biodynamic and Organic Wines

< 1 min read

Hello and welcome to our mini-clinic on biodynamic and organic wines. In this 30-minute (or so) presentation, I cover what we mean by “natural wine” (a mushy and vague term that nonetheless has become a standard term in the wine world), the criteria required to be considered an organic and/or biodynamic wine, and why winemakers choose to follow these rigorous disciplines (and what you stand to gain by pursing these wines).

The day after this session, Pix published a fascinating article on the history of sulfites labeling in the United States, and how we have salad bars to thank for it. In this presentation, we discuss this very labeling and to be honest, I was not aware of the history or its utility on the label. Be sure to read that article when you have time.
