Biodynamic Wine
Photographer Becky Luigart-Stayner

What it says: biodynamic

What it means: Biodynamic organic winemakers use an astronomical calendar―with positions of the moon and planets―to determine planting and harvesting dates (like the planting tables in The Old Farmer’s Almanac). Homeopathic concoctions are used in the vineyard and soil.

Our Recommendation: Copper Hill Pinot Noir ($20)

Tastes like: wild cherries, stone fruit

Serve with: salmon, veal chops, roast duck
