This pioneering book studies biodynamic wines and winemaking principles and is written by an award-winning expert and leading authority on the subject. Monty Waldin explains in detail how biodynamic winemaking differs from organic winemaking, and how this in turn differs from conventional methods. The first part of the book describes the principles used and how the technique has evolved, including the important influence of Rudolf Steiner. The second part offers in-depth profiles of the world's biodynamic producers and their wines, featuring their winemaking philosophies and methods, contact details, and information about visiting wineries to experience the methods in use. There are also two ratings given to the wines and producers, the first is for quality and value for money and the second is for particularly noteworthy examples.
