Biodynamic Viticulture Pioneer Passes Away
The wine world has lost a pioneer of biodynamic viticulture and one of its most revered winemakers in the death of Anne-Claude Leflaive.
Leflaive will be remembered most for her innovative use of herbal sprays and composting techniques, which constitute the essential component of making wine biodynamically.
Becky Wasserman, a prominent Burgundy broker, said “Anne-Claude Leflaive's early experimentation and endorsement of biodynamic viticulture, rendered this method of cultivation respectable to collectors of white Burgundies, who initially thought of the method as mystical and slightly radical. She was an important voice for the health and future of vineyards.”
