World’s No.1 Restaurant goes Biodynamic1st July 2020
Biodynamic vineyard practices are proving key to mitigating the impact of climate change according to a top Italian wine producer.
“Today, the vineyard of a Barolo cru costs €3-4 million per hectare, so this [climate change] is a big question for us” says winemaker Gianluca Pica. “It starts from the soil, biodynamics bring the environment into balance, which extends to the grapes too.”
The vineyard finds biodynamics leads to earlier and more even ripening in the grapes, which is a boon when climate change is causing temperatures to rise on average across northern Italy.
