Biodynamic Certified Wine Producers imported in exclusivity by Wine Gallery in Thailand
Many organic wine producers claim they are also farming according to biodynamic practices but actually very few are officially biodynamic certified.
The two main biodynamic certifications are: Demeter and Biodyvin
Demeter International is the largest certification organization for biodynamic agriculture which was founded upon the principles of Rudolph Steiner, and is one of three predominant organic certifiers.
Its name is a reference to Demeter, the Greek goddess of grain and fertility. Demeter Biodynamic Certification is used in over 50 countries to verify that biodynamic products meet international standards in production and processing.
The Demeter certification program was established in 1928, and as such was the first ecological label for organically produced wines.
Certification must be renewed annually. Demeter’s “biodynamic” certification requires biodiversity and ecosystem preservation, soil husbandry, livestock integration, the prohibition of genetically engineered organisms and viewing the farm as a living “holistic organism”.
You will find bellow a few producers who are DEMETER Biodynamic Certified and who are imported in Thailand in exclusivity by Wine Gallery:
Bonneau du Martray (Burgundy)
Bruno Clavelier (Burgundy)
Domaine Alain Chabanon (Languedoc-Roussillon)
While Demeter certifies all kinds of biodynamic agriculture, Biodyvin concentrates solely on viticulture.
To obtain BIODYVIN approval, some oenological practices are prohibited or regulated.
The objective of a vinification that respects the biodynamic principles applied in the vineyard would have to be the elimination of any input in the winemaking process and any practice that would change the grapes' natural balance.
