BIODYNAMIC

At Europa Grand Cru, you will find a wide range of wines made according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture. These environmentally friendly wines are made from vineyards with diverse beneficial flora and fauna. Chemicals are not allowed and machine interventions are limited. The vines are pruned and the grapes are harvested by hand, in accordance with the rhythm of nature. It is said that biodynamic wines allow the vines to truly express their character and reflect their terroir.

Biodynamic agriculture is an ancient anti-chemical practice, older than most organic movements. Tasks such as planting, pruning, and harvesting are all regulated by the biodynamic calendar. This is due to the belief in biodynamics that the universe is made up of interconnecting bodies. Everything from the moon and planets to the vine and human, it says, is interconnected, and biodynamics seeks to strike a balance between them.
Instead of clearing vineyard rows with herbicides, weeds are permitted to grow. As plowing the land with tractors compresses the soil, some biodynamic growers do so with horses. The gentler plowing encourages microbial activity in the soil. The manure, of course, is used to make treatments that nourish the vineyard.
In the winery, biodynamic wine is made without any manufactured additions, such as acidity adjustments or commercial yeast. Natural yeasts, found on the grape skin, are used to carry out the fermentation. Such yeasts naturally carry all the subtleties and nuances of the given vintage.
Today, more and more wine growers are adopting the biodynamic philosophy. They are making distinctive wines with specificities of 

climate, geology, personality. Europa Grand Cru works closely with producers like Domaine Leroy and Domaine Arlaud of Burgundy, Jaques Selosse of Champagne, and M. Chapoutier of the Rhone Valley, to bring you a true experience of nature in wine.
