Presentation:

This book is a true introduction to the concepts of biodynamics, mainly in its application to viticulture. More than a know-how and a rigorous method, biodynamics is a way of seeing the living world, which reconciles the cosmic dimension with the earthly scale. It is based on fundamental notions of physics, such as the four states of matter or the principles of decomposition and recomposition.

You will discover the different techniques of biodynamics, notably the famous preparations - the main source of its effectiveness - which are the very essence of it. This book also deals with diseases, homeopathy, cellar work and the primordial influence of the planets. Far from being a purely didactic presentation, it deals with the main principles of this way of cultivation which respects the soil and the plant. Numerous diagrams and illustrations help to better understand a process that produces wine of unparalleled quality and has converted most of the world's recognized vineyards.

The author:

After university studies in the United States and a career in finance, Nicolas Joly took over the La Coulée de Serrant estate, acquired by his parents in the 1960s, in 1976. 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.
