At Burn Cottage we believe in minimal intervention winemaking. Our task is to discover the genius of the site and of the individual vineyard blocks within and to allow the wines to reveal it. We believe in minimizing sulfur usage and avoiding all additives whenever possible. We avoid the use of cultured yeasts, bacteria, associated nutrient products and filters. We avoid racking whenever possible and do wine work according to lunar and celestial rhythms.

Label artwork:
The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily is a fairy tale by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe published in 1795 in Friedrich Schiller's German magazine Die Horen (The Hours). It portrays, in imaginative form, Goethe's impressions of Schiller's Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man. The story revolves around the crossing and bridging of a river, which represents the divide between the outer life of the senses and the ideal aspirations of the human being.

This is a story about the combining the 'ideal human being' in everyone with 'outer life experiences', the two working in harmony. If this can be achieved then the human will become complete and fulfill his destiny. This was an inspirational story for Steiner and informs his life's work, including Bio-dynamics. The practice of Bio-dynamics can be seen as an undertaking of the "ideal human being" working towards a better way with long term solutions to existing problems. Bio-dynamics is a practice of the 'ideal human' as this approach is in contrast to the short term economic gain approach of chemical fertilization.
