The cosmic vineyard


The cosmic vineyard: "Burying cow horns full of manure and hanging stags' bladders stuffed with yarrow from the trees may seem like the actions of a lunatic fringe. But biodynamic practices such as these are being increasingly embraced by some of the most respected names in the wine world and resulting in some seriously good wines."
"When I first encountered biodynamics I thought it was way too out there, ... I didn't approach it from a spiritual perspective, I came to it as an empiricist. I wanted to make the best wine I could and saw it working for others." Mike Weersing, Pyramid Valley
