Biodynamic Winemaking at Bookham Wine Club


On 12th February 2024 I am presenting a perhaps controversial evening in Bookham: Biodynamic Winemaking - Mumbo-Jumbo or Proven Principles You can expect a lively and controversial evening!

Many scientists, including oenologists state that biodynamics is nothing but unscientific tosh. Yet, the fact is that many of the world's greatest wine estates are biodynamic. These include Domaine de la Romanée Conti and Domaine Leroy in Burgundy, Chapoutier in the Rhône Valley, and Château Pontet-Canet in Pauillac, Bordeaux.

In this evening I will discuss the background to biodynamics, beginning in the 1920s with the work of the controversial figure Rudolf Steiner. The biodynamic preparations that are added to the vineyards in tiny quantities will be explained.

And, of course, we will taste some great wines!

I understand the evening is almost sold out. However, if you wish to attend, please see: Bookham
