Biodynamic, biodyna-what?

Certified Biodynamic Borenore Vineyard

‘Biodynamic’ is a term first used by Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner in the early 1900s. It described a holistic approach to agriculture, involving the management of farms as total systems, less reliant on external inputs.

Any biodynamic farm must first comply with organic rules. Where biodynamic principles and prescribed homoeopathic preparations are part of the farming program, then the term biodynamic is used. Tamburlaine utilises some biodynamic practices and preparations in our organic vineyard programs.

Why Drink Organic Wine?

Why drink organic wine

Simple. It’s better for you, and here are five reasons why!


1. Sustainable farming

Organic farms are as productive and always more sustainable than non-organic. Many agrichemical sprays leave residues in the plants/ fruit as well as in the surrounding environment and groundwater. 

2. Biological soil health

Biological soil health is at the heart of sustainable productive farms. The absence of harmful agrichemical sprays increases healthy soil microbe activity, optimising plant health.

3. Beneficial insect, fungi and bacteria protection

With organic farming methods, the beneficial fungi and bacteria are protected (the ‘good bugs’), rather than killed off with pesticides and herbicides. This means that plants are naturally more resilient to fungal disease and insect attack (‘bad bugs’).

4. Consumer benefits / low SO2

Organic eliminates agrichemical residues in wine, meaning we don’t consume them. Organic certification on labels is your only guarantee of this. Read on to find out more about the use of sulphate preservative in wine.

5. No GMOs

Genetically-modified plants and farming inputs are prohibited in certified wine production. The jury is out on the harmful side effects of GMO corn, canola and soy, where high residual herbicide levels are more and more finding their way into our food. BEWARE!
