Rudolf Steiner founded biodynamics with his agriculture course 100 years ago. How can we shape the next 100 years?
As we are all aware, viniculture is currently facing major challenges in the face of climate change. Can biodynamic viticulture alone be the solution - or will it come up against its limits at some point? Can the PIWI varieties, new cultivars, and adapted vineyard and water management stand up to the new adversities? Or will biodynamics also have to think outside the box and engage with completely new methods?
Biodynamics expert Romana Echensperger, together with the attending respekt winemakers, invites you to a tasting where she will discuss the "future of viniculture" with them and other guests on the basis of sixteen selected wines. Your comments are expressly requested!
