Monty Waldin's Biodynamic wine is a comprehensive and entertaining guide to the most argued-about green wine-making phenomenon of recent years. It is both an ideal how-to manual for growers and a captivating guide for wine professionals and wine lovers ...
Wines are generally defined in one of three ways: by their country or region of origin, by their colour (red, white, pink) or by their style (still, sparkling, fortified). Only recently have wines begun to be defined by how their grapes have been grown and the wine made, with a clear distinction between modern 'chemical' wine-growing on one hand, and the chemical-free organic or natural approach on the other. Now the world's most respected wine producers, from Bordeaux to the Barossa, from Chablis to California, increasingly see biodynamics as the method of choice for blue-chip wine-making.
Biodynamic wine explains concisely and clearly the theory behind biodynamics, how biodynamics differs from organics, and how the world's wine-makers - from high-end Bordeaux chateaux to under-the-radar family estates - use biodynamics in practice, often with significant and captivating variations according to wine style, local terroir, weather and even lunar cycles.
Biodynamic wine is a comprehensive and entertaining guide to the most argued-about green wine-making phenomenon of recent years. It is both an ideal how-to manual for growers and a captivating guide for wine professionals and wine lovers alike.
Monty Waldin is a consultant on biodynamic and sustainable viticulture and has written articles for Decanter and The Oxford Companion to Wine along with nine regional wine books. In 2013 he became the Regional Chair for Tuscany at the Decanter World Wine Awards. In 1999 his independent guide to organic wine was voted UK wine guide of the year. His Channel 4 TV series, 'Chateau Monty', followed his journey to make a biodynamic red wine from a vineyard in France's Roussillon region.
"Monty Waldin does not set out to proselytise, but rather set out the stall of biodynamics and let the reader decide." - winenous.com "The book is an open window to biodynamic wine, a true source of knowledge where the author explains the processes and philosophies of this way of being in the world of wines with a fluid and engaging writing." - Blend wine magazine
