Mastering Biodynamics

Napa Valley Wine Academy’s First-Ever Biodynamics Summit Series
June 5, 10, 17, 24 at 7 p.m. European (1 p.m. Eastern, and 10 a.m. Pacific)

How would you like to sit down with some of the world’s leading biodynamic practitioners?

Using a next-generation virtual conferencing platform, we’re inviting 50 participants to join our first Summit Series — which includes lectures, live Q&As and tastings as well as breakout sessions for intimate interaction with both attendees and presenters.

A 6-bottle wine kit is included in the price (a $99 value) and includes some of the finest biodynamic wines on the market, several of which aren’t even available in the U.S. yet. Some of the most famous wine regions in the world such as Burgundy and Alsace are converting to biodynamics. Yet it’s barely covered in wine education — even in the highest levels of certifications.

Become a more credible wine professional by debunking the myths on biodynamics and understanding its role in modern viticulture.
