Top winery dabbles in biodynamics


Haskell Vineyards in Stellenbosch has taken a giant leap of faith by converting one of the farm’s top vineyard blocks into a biodynamic farming experiment. Wikus Pretorius, general manager, shares some biodynamic farming ideas with Denene Erasmus.

“Biodynamic farming is not a topic that gets much attention around the braai,” says Wikus Pretorius, general manager and viticulturist of Haskell Vineyards in Stellenbosch. He is stirring valerian flowers into a bucket of water by creating vortexes in alternate directions. This will later be poured over the biodynamic compost heap. “You shouldn’t expect miracles overnight, it’s a long process and you need to trust and believe in the forces of nature that are around us every day!”
