PHOTOS: Biodynamic Wine Event at Healdsburg SHED

The Biodynamic wine panel at Healdsburg SHED paired an interested crowd of locals and winemakers with Sonoma's leading Biodynamic experts Sunday night. 

More than 350 acres of Sonoma vineyards are certified Biodynamic, accounting for about 12 percent of Biodynamic vines in the U.S.

Panelists shared their experiences on growing wine grapes using Biodynamic practices, as well as the different certification standards for Demeter certified wines. 

The event was followed by a rare tasting of Biodynamic wines made by the panel participants.

From left to right, panelists included Ridgely Evers of DaVero, Alex Davis
of Porter Creek Vineyards, Hugh Chappell of Quivira, and Biodynamic
consultant Philippe Coderey
