Ever wondered what Biodynamic® wine is? This is the tour for you. We'll visit leading Napa wineries to learn about biodynamic wine grape growing and how it compares to organics, and find out why some of California's leading vintners swear by Biodynamics.
You'll see sensitive crystallizations that show the energetics of wines grown with Biodynamically grown grapes compared to other methods.
All the wineries we visit make wine from certified organic/Biodynamic grapes. We are not fans of the wine industry's widespread use of Roundup...more than 450,000 pounds of Roundup (and other much more dastardly pesticides) are used statewide each year by the wine industry. Not nice for our ecosystem - or wine tourists.
Included: guide services. Not included: food, tasting fees or transportation (which can be arranged at a discount).
During the month of October (the only month it's offered), you can also participate in grape stomping.
Come experience "cowhorn culture" at its finest!
