Toti Undurraga at O Globo de Brasil: “The best wines in the world will be biodynamic”

In an interview with the newspaper O Globo from Brazil, Cristóbal Undurraga -presented as a pioneer in Latin America in the production of biodynamic wines- maintained that in the near future, the great wines of the world will be all biodynamic or organic at least, otherwise, there will be wine in great quantity, but wines very similar to each other.

During a workshop conducted by the Brazilian importer Grand Cru and disseminated by O Globo, Undurraga explained that what biodynamics is looking for is fleeing from the standardization of wines and this is achieved with a method of cultivation in which agrochemicals are not used and where production is thought to be in harmony with the environment, avoiding the entry of external agents. In this way, wines with more marked individual characteristics that express the distinctiveness of the place where the grapes are planted are guaranteed.

He affirmed that, although the market for Biodynamic wines is still small, it is a niche that is growing. "The global trend is that people are becoming more concerned about their nutrition. The new generations are convinced of the importance of a diet without chemical products. And wine needs to be part of that".he said.
