*Biodynamic wines are ecological wines produced without any artificial chemical fertilisers, insecticides, fungicides and herbicides and without the use of additives in wine. Bio-dynamic viticulture and the processing of the grapes go beyond organic standards in that they are treated as a holistic system including the influence of cosmos.
