Spain is known to have one of the largest vineyards in the world. Hence it has become imperative for Spain to take up some environmental friendly practices while harvesting and farming in these vineyards. The rise of organic farming and biodynamic practices in the vineyards have been a result of this need. On this exclusive tour through the vineyards of Catalunya, you will be shown the various biodynamic practices carried out in this region and the effects it has on the environment.
What exactly is a Biodynamic Wine?
The concept behind biodynamics is that everything in the universe is interconnected and gives off a resonance or ‘vibe’. The interconnectivity of everything includes celestial bodies like the moon, planets and stars.
Biodynamic viticulture is the practice of balancing this resonance between vine, man, earth and stars. Essentially, biodynamics is a holistic view of agriculture. The biodynamic way of farming: one step further than the organic way.
Through this practice, you will discover the scientific and spiritual world of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Biodynamic and Anthroposophy philosophy in the 1920’s. On this exclusive tour you will also explore the universe of Biodynamic Preparations: the properties of medicinal plants, mineralogy and the cosmos' influence. You will be able to prepare your own sample of the silica preparation named 501, and medicinal plants samples as well.
