Under the full moon, at a thriving vineyard on the west coast of Australia last night, they were picking cabernet sauvignon. I know this because Vanya Cullen, winemaker and managing director of Cullen Wines tweeted a picture saying so – “Full moon fruit day. Cabernet harvest today”. Cullen grows grapes and makes wine according to biodynamic principles – that is, according to the waxing and waning of the moon, the positions of the other celestial orbs, and with the help of special preparations placed in cow horns and buried in the earth.
