Please join us to celebrate the eclipse by experiencing biodynamic wines on Monday, August 21st from 10am-6pm. Andy Hale, Director of Education for the Asheville School of Wine at Metro Wines will conduct a continuous class though tasting and presentation to explain what biodynamic winemaking is all about.
Montinore Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir will be “on the taste” and “on the house.” “We farm our vineyards using Biodynamic and organic practices and create wines that honor our land and traditions – from root to bottle, from our land to you.”
About Montinore: https://www.montinore.com/
Generally speaking, Biodynamic takes a holistic view of agriculture viewing everything, including celestial bodies like the moon, the planets and stars, as interconnected. The practice seeks to balance vine, man, earth and stars. Biodynamic winemakers claim their wines have stronger, cleaner, more vibrant tastes and are drinkable longer. You decide!
About the Eclipse:
On August 21st, the sun, the moon and the earth will align so that the sun is totally obscured by the moon. This will result in a good part of the United States going dark in mid-afternoon. The event is extraordinarily rare. This is the first total solar eclipse in almost 100 years.
