- Biodynamic techniques lend themselves to the production of wine, and there has been a recent resurgence of biodynamic and organic wine production, partly because the taste is noticably improved, and partly because the artificial ingredients in non-organic wine lead to hangovers!
But biodynamic principles can also be used when tasting wine. Ever wondered why the same wine tastes different / better on different days?
The answer can be found in the Biodynamic calendar.
Every day is a good day to drink wine, but some days are better than others…
– Fruit days (red) are BEST for bringing out the taste of the wine
– Flower days (yellow) are neutral in terms of taste
– Leaf days (green) will not do the wine any favours
– Root days (brown) will have a negative effect on the wine flavour
If you need any proof of this – other than your own taste buds, check out the recent lunar wine tasting articles on the BBC and in The Guardian, or you can watch this 5 minute SKY News clip about Lunar Wine Tasting
Both Marks and Spencer and Tesco product buyers consult a moon wine tasting calendar so that they only conduct wine-tasting for supplier selection on Fruit Days!!!
So why not use our Biodynamic Moon Gardening Calendar, and save the Chateau Lafitte for Fruit days, and drink the boxed plonk on Root days. Simply choose the red-coloured Fruit days on the calendar, or the Yellow coloured Flower days as the next-best choice.
