respect-BIODYN is an Austrian winegrowers’ association for biodynamic producers. It recently welcomed four new, well-respected members: Weingut Ebner-Ebenauer and Weingut Schödl in the Weinviertel, Weingut Diwald in Wagram and Weingut Schnaitmann in Württemberg in Germany.
With these new members, the association has 21 members in Austria, eleven in Germany, two in Italy and one each in Hungary and Slovenia. In total, these 36 members have 1133 hectares of vineyards.
The purpose of the association is not to become a large association. They offer growers who they think meet the requirements for quality and individuality in the wines to become members. They work according to Rudolf Steiner’s teachings and great importance is given to biodiversity, compost and limiting additives and processes in the cellar as much as possible.
