The organic wine movement is going through its renaissance right now with scores of bars and restaurants serving organically grown wines popping up across the globe. In Hong Kong, at least, the movement really only began when Karim Hadjadj founded La Cabane Group in 2010, which gave wine lovers access to a viticulture movement defined by wines grown in accordance with organic agricultural practices.
But what exactly are the differences between biodynamic and organic? Wine made from organic grapes grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, added sulfites, or genetically modified seeds and crops, is termed “organic”.
The biodynamic method of farming integrates organic grapes, agricultural methods and farm animals in a “natural” ecosystem that utilises astrological and lunar cycles to produce wine that is the
sum of all of these beliefs.
