Biodynamic is a relatively new buzz word in the wine industry. DeLoach Vineyard in Santa Rosa, California isn't just growing grapes to make some stellar wine: This winery is growing them in a way few others are, and because of their unique methods, they're setting the bar extraordinarily high for sustainable wineries. According to DeLoach, while 60% of California's vineyards claim to be using some sort of sustainable practice, they're one of the only ones who can call themselves a biodynamic winery. But just what does "biodynamic" mean? We took a trip to find out, and in the process discovered why all wineries can take a cue from DeLoach Vineyards.
