Organic & Biodynamic Wines

For over ten years, Christopher Piper Wines has been working closely with many of its growers and winemakers, to develop a meaningful selection of organic and biodynamic wines from around the world. Besides this, Chris Piper, in his role as winemaker at Château du Pavé, has been working on the conversion of its vineyards to organic production. This was achieved with Ecocert certification in 2013 and has greatly helped our understanding of the importance of organic and biodynamic production.

More and more producers realise the importance of cleaning-up and restoring their soils to where they were seventy years’ ago, unpolluted by man-made fertilisers, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Protecting the environment for their children has become a priority and with this has also come a noticeable uplift in quality as vines and vineyards return to full health. The challenge for the organic and biodynamic producers is to achieve a balance between sensibly reduced yields and financial security.

The following producers are either certified organic or are in the process of conversion:

  • Alsace: Domaine Henri Fuchs, Ribeauvillé ORGANIC
