We are bringing you a stellar collaboration - with our neighbour The Care Concept by Tazelbox Official, we put together a tasting to explore a theme that holds importance in both of our crafts: the lunar cycle.

Come and savour an all-biodynamic wine line-up under the moonlight. Learn a bit about what makes biodynamic wine different to organic or conventional wines whilst you wait for a personal tarot reading by Stephanie from the Tazelbox Official. Who knows what else the night may hold? Perhaps the cards do...

THUR 25.07 | 7-9PM | La Cabane Wine Cellar

What we'll drink:
Jauma Mimsy Chenin Spritz 2023 - sparkling Chenin Blanc from Adelaide Hills, to kick off the tasting with a bang.

Gut Oggau Theodora 2022 - from biodynamic duo Stephanie and Eduard Tscheppe, the young Theodora is a bold blend of Grüner Veltliner and Welschriesling.

Kindeli Luna Nueva 2022 - light and crisp blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay from New Zealand.

Jouves Tu Vin Plus Aux Soirées 2022 - fresh and juicy blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc from South-West France, perfect for summer.

And! We'll pair each wine with a healing stone and dig more into that too.

Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wine. What’s the difference?

To understand this concept and its various ramifications, it is necessary to keep something clear in mind: before the 20th century and the spreading of affordable synthetic fertilisers, all farming was organic. When the shift to the use of synthetics and pesticides happened, it became necessary to diversify traditional organic farming from the new modern farming. 


ORGANIC WINE

Simply put, organic farming forbids the use of synthetic fertilisers, synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms. The basic requirements are generally specific and engage the farmers not to use any chemical fertilisers and other synthetic products in the vineyard. It does not prevent the vintner from using the conventional winemaking process after harvesting. 


BIODYNAMIC WINE

Let’s take organic farming one step further: Biodynamic. The creator of this agricultural system is the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, who developed the principles of biodynamics in a series of lectures given in 1924 in Germany. Here lies the foundation of true organic wines, with a strict limit in the use of additives, stringent requirements and at the end obtaining a biodynamic certification.


NATURAL WINE

The previous definitions are usually, and rightfully, associated with it, because most natural wine is also organic and/or biodynamic. But not vice versa!

Natural wine is wine in its purest form, simply described as nothing added, nothing taken away, just grapes fermented. No manipulation whatsoever, minimal intervention both in the vineyards and in the winery. Healthy grapes, natural yeast and natural fermentation, with no filtration nor fining. Sounds easy, right? However, making natural wine is unforgiving and it requires a bigger amount of work than conventional wine. To this day, natural wine has no certification yet.
