It being earth day tomorrow I thought this would be a fine time to explore attitude towards the whole organic/natural/biodynamic movement. I reached out to some wine professionals to get their opinions about these wines, but before I turn the stage over to them I’d like to explore the situation briefly.

Before we consider the value of these wines let’s be as clear as possible in regards to the definitions, whichcan be vague.

To begin with there is no organic wine, just wine made from organic grapes. Organic is a way of growing crops,the techniques used in the cellar, and additional treatments in the vineyard are what distinguishes, to a great extent, the wines peddled under the moniker natural or biodynamic.
