Let's talk Pinot and its mutations. These varieties are all related but unique unto themselves.
Pinot Noir is an ancient eastern French vine and one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. Hard to grow, due to its thin skins that makes it susceptible to disease, it is sensitive to terroir and changeable weather. As it ripens fairly early, it’s primarily grown in places with cooler climates and when appropriately cultivated, it creates wines that are almost ethereal.
Pinot Meunier is a red grape variety mostly known for being one of the three main varieties used in the production of Champagne. It's uncommon to find it not blended.
 Pinot Blanc is a point genetic mutation, or color mutation, of the genetically unstable Pinot noir. 
Pinot Gris is originally from the vineyards of Burgundy, and it's a Pinot Noir pink-skinned mutation that has now found home in many regions all across the World.

Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wine. What’s the difference?

To understand this concept and its various ramifications, it is necessary to keep something clear in mind: before the 20th century and the spreading of affordable synthetic fertilisers, all farming was organic. When the shift to the use of synthetics and pesticides happened, it became necessary to diversify traditional organic farming from the new modern farming. 


ORGANIC WINE

Simply put, organic farming forbids the use of synthetic fertilisers, synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or genetically modified organisms. The basic requirements are generally specific and engage the farmers not to use any chemical fertilisers and other synthetic products in the vineyard. It does not prevent the vintner from using the conventional winemaking process after harvesting. 


BIODYNAMIC WINE

Let’s take organic farming one step further: Biodynamic. The creator of this agricultural system is the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, who developed the principles of biodynamics in a series of lectures given in 1924 in Germany. Here lies the foundation of true organic wines, with a strict limit in the use of additives, stringent requirements and at the end obtaining a biodynamic certification.


NATURAL WINE

The previous definitions are usually, and rightfully, associated with it, because most natural wine is also organic and/or biodynamic. But not vice versa!

Natural wine is wine in its purest form, simply described as nothing added, nothing taken away, just grapes fermented. No manipulation whatsoever, minimal intervention both in the vineyards and in the winery. Healthy grapes, natural yeast and natural fermentation, with no filtration nor fining. Sounds easy, right? However, making natural wine is unforgiving and it requires a bigger amount of work than conventional wine. To this day, natural wine has no certification yet.
