HERE’S HOW THE CHAT WENT:
There are many resources for further reading on this wide-ranging topic. With respect to certified organic grapes and wines the Pacific Agricultural Certification Society in Vernon, BC is a good resource. It has links to the Canadian Organic Standards and Permitted Substances which are allowed in Canada.
Information of the biodynamic movement is found at Demeter-International.
Much work has taken place lately in BC with respect to creating sustainable practice guides for vineyards, wineries and winery hospitality. The guides are now for self assessment but there are plans to make the program certified by a third-party auditor.
