Also known as organic-dynamic viticulture production form for the production of grapes and Wine (Principles and general information are under Organic viticulture whose study is also recommended as an introduction to the complex topic). She goes to the Austrian anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) back. He studied mathematics, natural sciences, philosophy, literature and history in Wien . In the 1920s, Steiner introduced rules for "biodynamic agriculture" for the flourishing of agriculture and propagated these through numerous lectures. The core message of his philosophy is that the disease of a plant is the sign of a naturally disturbed balance and on the use of chemical aids in the fertilization is due. Initially, biodynamics developed in agriculture and horticulture, viniculture came later.
