Waldin and Smart fail to convince in"disappointing" biodynamics debate
Biodynamic winemaker Monty Wadldin and viticulturist, Dr Richard Smart failed to live up to their billing at what has been described as a "disappointing" biodynamics debate held last night at the WSET in London.
Anne Krebiehl, MW undergraduate, wine consultant and writer, writing exclusively for Harpers on the debate said neither of the two protagonists were able to make a convincing argument around a debate that asked: "Should the UK wine trade promote organic and biodynamic wines?"
In what was seen as a "missed opportunity" to have a detailed, comprehensive open debate on the opportunities, or not, around biodynamic winemaking, Krebiehl believes neither men took the issue forward.
