Paxton Vineyard Field Day – McLaren Vale SA

November 10, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

When viticulture and winemaking work in synchronicity the result is naturally elegant wine. At Paxton we grow grapes and make wines that radiate purity, vitality and elegance.  Biodynamics is the most advanced form of organic farming using natural preparations and composts to bring the soil and vines into balance, resulting in the healthiest vines and highest quality wines.

This is a rare opportunity to get insights from a diverse mix of experienced biodynamic practitioners: from Paxton Vineyard, Ben Paxton; Director of Operations; Richard Freebairn; Winemaker; and Chris Chapman, Vineyards Manager. BAA representatives Shane Joyce; Biodynamic Consultant and John Hodgkinson;  Biodynamic Presenter from Qld and NSW will also be in attendance.

Topics discussed will include:

  • biodynamics from vine to bottle;
  • pest and weed management;
  • under vine weed removal;
  • biodynamic preparations;
  • composting;
  • spray equipment; and
  • winemaking with bodynamics.
