Grape Growing
Although not categorising himself as biodynamic, Josko Gravner follows Rudolf Stenier's principles in the vineyard and the cellar - adjusted to suit his own methods.  Vineyards are managed without fertilisers or chemicals.

Wine Making
Winemaker Josko now ferments all of his wines in amphorae which are burned neck deep in the soil from which it was grown. Fruit is hand harvested by the moon after late ripening, and undergoes a seven year cycle of fermentation and ageing.  1 year in amphora and 6 in oak, reflecting the regeneration pattern of cells in our bodies.  Bottling is done in according with the lunar cycle, a step that Josko regards as imperative for wines which are unfiltered.
