You are no doubt aware that the biodynamic revolution in the wine industry is in full bloom. Evidence of this phenomenon is everywhere you look. It can be experienced as simply as by enjoying the contents of a bottle of biodynamically produced wine, or as elaborately as by spending a weekend at Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley's Rutherford region.

Yes, if you've got three grand burning a whole in your pocket, and your biodynamic curiosity is otherwise insatiable, the beautiful Wine Country resort has a package for you.
The two-night package is offered by request only and is timed based on the moon cycle. Among the features of the offer is a one-hour private wine tasting led by Auberge sommelier Kris Mangerum. The tasting serves as an introduction to organic farming and biodynamic winemaking as well as a guided tour of the nuances and intricacies of those wines. In addition to luxurious accommodations, also included is dinner for two at the resort's award-winning restaurant featuring organically farmed fare paired with a selection of biodynamic wines. Tours of three vineyards--complete with private tastings--are also part of the deal, guided of course by experts in biodynamic farming.

It's an immersive couple of days that will no doubt leave you richer for the experience, even as it leaves you a bit poorer for the experience.
