Biodynamic winemaking is a subject that elicits very diverging views (and that is often misunderstood). Some wine commentators (and winemakers) are totally convinced that the sometimes strange principles work, while others seem to approach the issue as a crusade with an enemy (“the non-scientific biodynamists”) that must be crushed.
Now there is a new twist to be discussed: management training built on biodynamic principles. Mas Zenitude in the Languedoc offers courses in “biodynamics and management”. In today’s competitive environment how can you think thoroughly, be creative and motivate your management team? “Maybe the best strategy is to get a biodynamic and holistic view rather than a helicopter view” they suggest.
An added bonus is that the training is mixed with walks in the vineyards and wine tastings. (And the owner happens to be a Swede who has settled as winemaker in the Languedoc.) More on management training and biodynamics here.
