I was reading this months Wines & Vines something struck me about the piece entitled California Wineries Get Certified. ....' The 17-acre Deloach vineyards in Russian River Vallet, became one only 64-wineries or vineyards worldwide to achieve Biodynamic certification.' For a moment they had me. I know better (though last year, thanks to Kevin Hamel, I had an amazingly delicious blue hubbard squash from their certified biodynamic vineyard garden). But I questioned my own knowledge. Not that I knew the numbers of BioD vineyards but hell, there had to be more than eight squared. The piece makes Boisset look like some sort of Green Giant, One of 64 in the world? A movement that has had such power over the wine industry only has 64 certified wineries and vineyards in the world? How is that possible? It wasn't possible. Who was at fault, the trusting writer or the press release this I was sure it was lifted from? Sure enough the release wasn't too dififcult to find. Where the Charles C. release absolutely used (but did not explain) the little registered trademark after the Biodynamic the Wines & Vines piece omitted it. Never the less, the release used the misleading, worldwide. The registered BioD trademark is ONLY doled out for the United States and not 'Worldwide." Demeter USA is related to but different from Demeter International. DBTA protects the legally registered Demeter certification marks, and the names Demeter® and Biodynamic®. Hah! By the way, have you noticed that everyone in the world is eating bitter chocolate this week in time for easter and the #2 chocolate holiday? Who ever wrote that press release, which must have had worldwide distribution, probably deserved a promotion. Well done!
