Could cow horns, vortexes, and the words of a prophet named Rudolf Steiner hold the key to producing the most alluring wines in the world--and to saving the planet? In "Voodoo Vintners" wine writer Katherine Cole reveals the mysteries of biodynamic winegrowing, tracing its practice rom Paleolithic times to the finest "domaines" in Burgundy today. At the epicenter of the American biodynamic revolution are the Oregon winemakers who believe that this spiritual style of farming results in the truest translations of "terroir" and the purest pinot noirs possible. Cole introduces these "voodoo vintners," examining their motivations and rationalizations and explaining why the need to farm biodynamically courses through their blood.Her engaging narrative answers the call of oenophiles everywhere for more information about this "beyond organic" style of farming.
