WHAT TO EXPECT
This conversation coincided with New Zealand Organic Wine Week and examined how sustainability, organics, biodynamics and natural wine all exist together. We take a bird's eye view of the unique development of winegrowing in New Zealand which is based on organic principles - Biodynamics on the one side and wider sustainable practices on the other and how low-impact winemaking is applied in the winery. We then move to a grassroots perspective, exploring the stories behind the wines we have selected to see how each winegrower has embodied these philosophies in practice - telling the narrative of people and place.
