This is a text that I publish from time to time because it's, at the same time, both synthetic and comprehensive.

Os devotos de Baco mais fervorosos certamente já ouviram falar em biodinâmica. Este modo de fazer vinhos que beira o exoterismo tem muitos discípulos no mundo todo, segue regras estritas e recebe certificações internacionais. Entre as técnicas da biodinâmica está a substituição de agrotóxicos por misturas naturais a base de ervas enterradas em crânios de bois, por exemplo.
