Biodynamics

In brief, the vine grown biodynamically, according to the precepts of Rudolph Steiner, guarantees that no kind of fertilizer (apart from biodynamic compost or manure), insecticide, nor herbicide is used.

Also the vines are fed with different plant infusions and pampered according to the cycles of nature, including the lunar cycle. Thus, Man, animal, and plant find a beneficial synergy together at Domaine Piccard offering you a moment sublime and unforgettable wines!

1924: Rudolf Steiner establishes biodynamic agriculture. This is rooted in the inheritance collected for more than 7'900 years in agriculture. Biodynamics is based on the desire to cultivate nature with ... nature. It regenerates soils and plants and offers consumers products whose aromas and nutritional qualities are unmatched.

Biodynamics is currently experiencing a boom in wine activity. Biodynamic agriculture considers nature as a whole entity producing food while preserving herself for future generations, or even improving herself. The soil, and in particular the first meter of soil, becomes the most important component in this type of agriculture: in fact, it is from this that all life on earth depends.

This first meter of soil rich in humus took thousands of years to have such a large microbiological activity and abundant microfauna. These microorganisms work tirelessly to produce the organic matter which plants need to grow. It is therefore important to take care of it. Conventional agriculture has destroyed most of these microscopic populations with fungicides, insecticides, and weed killers. It has therefore become necessary to turn back before the planet's soils are destroyed. Biodynamic agriculture allows us to return to a state of good soil health in about ten years, which is relatively little time in the life of a soil that has lived many lives before us - and that hopefully will continue to to live a long time after us.
