Lanson Champagne has a 17-hectare biodynamic-certified vineyard (originally House of Leclerc-Briant) where they use the biodynamic preperations, tisanes, algae sprays, and even play music in the vineyard to bring out the best in the grapes.
As reported in the Irish Examiner, it is possible to notate the amino acids in the plant cells and translate the genetic code into music notation which when played then helps the molecules in the plant resist mildew and wood disease.
The music is played in the vineyard in the early morning, at noon, and in the evening, but doesn’t work for oidium (powdery mildew), only for downy mildew.
