Biodynamic Wine in the temperature-controlled room at Le Passuer De Vin, Geneva, Switzerland

When I lived in Europe, my husband and I learned about the most coveted wines locally produced, which were often biodynamic. We lived close to Le Passeur De Vin, a hidden gem, the cave à vin (wine cellar in French)–known world-wide by those looking for the gran cru of biodynamic wines–located in the backstreets of Geneva, Switzerland.

Pierre, the proprietor, knew all the details concerning more than 1200 varieties sold in his shop, located on a backstreet in Paquis, right bank, on Rue de Zurich, Geneva Switzerland. The wine is sold in small batches, and sometimes never make it to the shelves.  Some of the best winemakers from Burgundy and South of France do this for a hobby, for the love of grapes, mother earth and the preservation of the art.
