How Biodynamic Works
I just discovered an awesome everyday drinking wine.Dynamic red wine is made by Ceago Vinegarden in Mendocino.
Jim Fetzer owns this winery and has been a pioneer in biodynamic grape growing in the United States. Please see link above for a detailed explanation of biodynamic farming.
But suffice it to say, that it is organic farming on steroids.
No chemicals are sprayed on the grapes and they take it a few steps further with very thoughtful stewardship of the entire property.
I discovered Dynamic at my local Trader Joes for $8.99! Now I am known to be kinda snooty when it comes to wine, so when I can find one I like for under $10, yeehaw!
I had the Dynamic 2006 red blend (55% Merlot, 15% Cab Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauv).
It was full of jammy blackberry fruit and a touch of nice earthiness with some dashes of black pepper to keep it kickin'.
