Philippe Armenier - For more than 20 years, has been carrying on a love affair with biodynamic farming, first in the vineyards of his family’s famed Domaine de Marcoux, and since 2002, passionately spreading the teachings of Rudolf Steiner throughout the vineyards of California and beyond. Working with many high quality California vineyards, well over 2000 vineyard acres have transitioned to Biodynamic practices under Philippe’s guidance, with approximately 1000 of these achieving Demeter certification.
