BIODYNAMIC CERTIFICATION in wine-growing is conducted by one of three organizations, the oldest of which is Demeter, founded in 1924. Demeter certifies many crops other than wine. Wine-only organisations with their own Biodynamic rulebooks include the France-based SIVCBD (‘Biodyvin’) and the Austria-based respekt-BIODYN.

For the avoidance of doubt, organic certification for any crop (not just wine grapes) is a pre-requisite for Biodynamic certification, whether from Demeter, the SIVCBD or respekt-BIODYN.
