Random Snippets: Root, Leaf, Flower or Fruit?

Totally geeky…

If you are into it, following the biodynamic calendar may help your booze taste better.  The calendar was actually created to help guide planting, sowing, and such…but, it applies to wine flavors, too!  [Mr. Steiner developed and shared the principles of biodynamic farming, you can Google him and get the full run down…kinda like extra organic with a side of the mystical…but basically all about ‘living’ soils and a truly sustainable approach to farming].

Apparently, drinking on a ‘root’ or ‘leaf’ day is not ideal to show off the assests of the wine.  Brings out the dirty, earthy funk.  But, to highlight the juice, do drink on a ‘fruit’ or ‘flower’ day, as the deliciousness of the wine is at the forefront and ready to shine.  You can find a fairly concise explanation here and a link to get a calendar…http://stellanatura.com/use.html.   LUSH suggests putting it to the test.  Practice, study, and conduct research.  SIP on each type of day.  Same wine.  Same situation.  Different bottle, duh.  Let us know what you think!  Of course, practical matters take precendence…like food pairing and the company and such.  And, if you want to drink, just do.  Drink what you like when you want.
