Palazzo Tronconi Tasting Rooms, Arce Italy
Time flies when we're talking wine!
Already we have now reached lesson three of our six part course. The aim of the course is to offer an awareness concerning agricultural dependance of the chemical industry. Wine is the only food/drink product not required by law to disclose ingredients on the label. Do you know whats in your wine? We hope that after the course the participants will gain an in-depth understanding and make an informed decision when buying wine.
In lesson 1 we discussed the differences between conventional, organic and biodynamic wine. Antroposofy the system that was established in the 1920's by philosopher, Rudolf Steiner.
Lesson 2 was all about wine defects hydrogen sulphide- the source of sulphur odours. The vine and the use of chemicals in biodynamic preparations, horn manure, production, storage and sprinkling.
See you this evening for lesson 3
