Biodynamics
An agricultural production system in which each farm is considered as a living organism. Biodynamic viticulture takes into account natural cycles, including lunar cycles. It uses plant-based sprays (nettle, horsetail, valerian, sage, etc.) and minerals (silica) to enhance soil life and strengthen plants.
