Biodynamic wines compared with organic and conventional wines

Biodynamic wines compared with Organic wines

Biodynamic wines are made from grapes which are farmed above and beyond the organic call of duty, where farms aim for self-sufficiency. Organic farmers prefer a long term sustainable use of land, while grapes for conventional wines are grown with the use of herbicides, pesticides and fungicides.
