Beckmen on Biodynamics Part II: The Five Core Concepts of Biodynamics

Steve Beck­men has bro­ken down the com­plex sub­ject bio­dy­nam­ic agri­cul­ture into five essen­tial tenets. Each of these aspects is fun­da­men­tal to bio­dy­nam­ic farm­ing. A closed sys­tem of fer­til­i­ty, bio­di­verse land, BD preps, the bio­dy­nam­ic cal­en­dar, and holis­tic think­ing are all key ingre­di­ents in the bio­dy­nam­ic method. Each of these is a tech­nique to fos­ter an envi­ron­ment that stays con­nect­ed with nature for the good of your crop.

Beckmen on Biodynamics: Part 1

The Roots of our Newest Syrah

Know­ing that Syrah excels on Purisi­ma Moun­tain, we’ve been test­ing the vineyard’s hos­pi­tal­i­ty by plant­i­ng more from cut­tings, rather than buy­ing vines that are graft­ed onto root­stock. Like our efforts with sin­gle clone and sin­gle block releas­es, these own-root­ed vines present anoth­er pos­si­bil­i­ty for a vari­a­tion on the vine­yard’s dis­tinct Syrah. How­ev­er, grow­ing Syrah Own does­n’t come with­out risks.
