Put a spring in your step (Organic/Biodynamic/Natural)
EVENT TEMPORARILY POSTPONED "Put a spring in your step" (Wine Tasting - Organic/Biodynamic/Natural) Thursday 19th March 2020 (7:30pm-9:00pm)
What’s it all about?
Some people like to kid themselves that wine, as it’s made from grapes, is part of their “5 a day”.
But it can be a touch healthier* if you go for wines that are made “naturally”.
First, #organic grapes won’t be picked with herbicide/insecticide/pesticide residues on them, because none can be used. You’re feeling better already, aren’t you? Add to shopping list … organic wines.
Secondly, if you believe in adding a little bit of what seems like “magic” to your viticulture, you’ll be using #biodynamic processes, which means that all the work is done according to the moon phases, and unusual practises such as burying a cow’s horn (filled with manure) at the end of each row of vines, are used! Not vegan friendly, but it all contributes to soil and vine health. Grasses, between the rows of vines, encourage pest-eating insects and make the vines’ roots work harder and go deeper into the soil for nutrients. Horses are used for ploughing, so no heavy tractors to compact the soil. Everything is more hands-on and, generally, winemakers using biodynamics have a higher quality approach to their wines and the health of their vineyard. Strangely, there’s more “life” in the taste and texture of a #biodynamic #wine. It really is true!
Thirdly, the winemaking process, itself, can be done using “natural” methods. Very limited use of SO2 preservative is one of the key factors. Too much = hangover/headache. Too little = vinegar (not wine). It’s all about “minimal intervention” in the winery. Doing less equals getting a better result. Just let it happen naturally. You know that’s how it’s meant to be.
#natural wines are often on the cutting edge of the art of winemaking, but sometimes all you get is more “rough cider” than “wine”. When it works, it’s wonderful. When it doesn’t, it’s a bit “Emperor’s new clothes”. The critics all adore it, but you’ve got to drink it!
Combine all three, #organic #biodynamic & #natural and you’ll be happier*, healthier*, more beautiful* and wealthier*, and your wines will be stunning (quality), but still not one of your “5 a day”. Sorry!
