The French cult winegrower Nicolas Joly (* 1945) is the owner of the Château de la Roche-aux-Moines in the region Loire, He is an uncompromising supporter of Biodynamic viticulture and founded the vintners' association in 2001 La Renaissance of the Appellations, One Quote by him:
The quality of a wine, like music, consists of three components. First the instrument, the vineyard. Then the musician, the winemaker. And finally, the acoustics in viticulture, the resonance - the connection with the archetypal forces of vine and vineyard. In Biodynamic viticulture, this resonance is intensified immensely.
