Genevieve Barmes (with her husband Francois who sadly died in 2012) converted her family domaine to biodynamics in the early 90s after years of conventional farming. They practice biodynamics rigorously (the only way!) and in 2001 built a cellar according to biodynamic principles – high ceilings and the correct materials to promote the right flow of energy. Through their biodynamic work in the vineyards they are able to make wines with an incredibly pure expression of their terroirs.
