"Wilridge -- the fullest expression of Biodynamic viniculture in Washington State"
-The Green Vine
Wilridge founded the first certified Organic and Biodynamic Vineyard and Winery in Washington State because some of the best wines in the world are grown and made Biodynamically. Biodynamic certification goes beyond organic certification by incorporating positive steps such as composting to maximize the "life force" in the vineyard and winery. Biodynamic practices not only produce a more sustainabe vineyard resource, yielding standout fruit, but also result in wines of exceptional and unique character.
In practice for nearly a century around the world, Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food and nutrition. Based on the scientific philosophies and observations of Wolfgang Goethe and Rudolf Steiner, today the Biodynamic movement encompasses thousands of regenerative gardens, farms, ranches, orchards, and vineyards.
Striving to create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from within the vineyard itself, Biodynamic vintners like Wilridge seek ecological, social and economic sustainability. Biodynamics is thus not just a holistic agricultural system but also a potent movement for new thinking and practices in all aspects of life connected to food and agriculture.
