Still for part IIIIt is often assumed that everything to do with organic and biodynamic vine growing and wine making is pure, natural and wholesome, but sometimes the picture is a bit more nuanced than you might imagine. In this series of videos Philippe Brun of Champagne Roger Brun in the village of Aÿ, presents the other side of the story and whilst he is certainly in favour of sensible viticulture and of looking after the environment, he has a few other points to make as well.

In the third and final video of this series on soil management in Champagne Philippe talks about biodynamic vineyards, (is it true that lower yields mean higher quality grapes?)  the threats posed by rabbits and birds (why do you not see nets over the vines in Champagne as you do in many other wine regions?) and about the use of insecticides.
