Biodynamic viticulture in Greece


Biodynamic viticulture in Greece was first introduced by amateur farmers who were experimenting in “nature farming” practices of a Japanese biodynamic leader named Masanobu Fukuoka. A few years ago, a Greek branch of Demeter International (a prestigious biodynamic certification organization) was established.

Some viticulturists and winegrowers apply the methods of biodynamic viticulture in Greece in various wine producing zones. Frequently, seminars on the topic are held in Greece—led by Pierre Masson and Enzo Nastati. As of yet, Greece does not have any winegrowers officially certified with the Demeter label. However, some Greek winegrowers participate in international biodynamic fairs such as: Renaissance des Appellations (in Loir, France) and Vini di Vignaioli for “natural wines” (in Parma, Italy).
