About the vineyard in the video:
Southbrook Vineyards, located in Niagara-on-the Lake, Ontario has the distinction of being the only bio-dynamically certified winery in Canada. Biodynamics, a form of regenerative agriculture, sees the soil, the plants and animals as one interrelated ecosystem and requires that all inputs to the crops be produced within that local ecosystem. Special composts are prepared from medicinal plants and animal manures. It also emphasizes adaptation to the local environment and was a precursor of the locavore movement.
