Presentation:

Reference book by Nicolas Joly, famous winegrower of the Coulée de Serrant, spearhead of biodynamics, to discover and learn about biodynamics. To better understand the stakes and principles of this method of cultivation that listens to nature, Nicolas Joly begins by recounting the history of the damage modern agriculture has done to the vines. In this context of industrialization of agricultural processes and techniques, biodynamics is above all a return to natural winemaking, to a respect for the vine and the environment in order to achieve the best possible expression of the terroir.
This book addresses all aspects of biodynamics: understanding the forms and their correspondences, using the forces of the living, using astrological cycles, etc...

The author:

After university studies in the United States and a career in finance, Nicolas Joly took over the estate of La Coulée de Serrant in 1976, acquired by his parents in the 1960s. He quickly realized that this exceptional territory was being deteriorated by modern agriculture using pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. He discovered biodynamic agriculture in 1980 and converted his entire vineyard in 1984. A tireless pilgrim, he travels the world giving many conferences on this method of viticulture. After having met with much skepticism, his influence became considerable in the wine world. He founded the association Soin de la Terre and is at the origin of a quality charter "For a full expression of the AOC" for the Association Renaissance Appellations, which regroups more than 220 domains in the world.
