to the wee hours of the morning unlike the original munich to bloom in october fest is not subject to a legal closing time. if you've had enough of being and need some peace and quiet how about a walk in the woods to hound for mushrooms this activity is becoming more and more popular among city to us also here in berlin spending time in the forest is the perfect balance to busy stressed for city life and mushroom picking is an added bonus as long as they have a tickle. commercial photographer or more it's schmidt enjoys the peace in a delicate nature of a forest bursting with life in autumn he spends as much time as he can in the woods searching for mushrooms he feels it's the ideal way to relax. it's really great

sometimes you'll just see a little cap sticking out and with 4 chinos if you're lucky you'll find an enormous mushroom hiding underneath down among the pine needles in mosques. the mushrooms go pretty deep down. so it's always a surprise what you discover. being in the forest can bring a lot of joy. decided to share his experience with others when he finds the mushroom he photographed and tries to capture its beauty his book into the woods is a visual journey through the forest into the realm of mushrooms. as a photographer i'm not just interested in mushrooms for their taste but for their shape too there are endless variety you discover new kinds of every forest i just can't get enough of the shapes and colors. schmidt has been working as the photographer in the studios this 2009 but in fact he's rarely there most of his

assignments taken abroad the high professional demands of international photo shoots create one thing in abundance stress you know there's been lots of time on the road i fly a lot and have a terrible c o 2 footprint i travel around the world and meet lots of people often large groups of people. playing everywhere all day i kind of have to play the clown for everyone i enjoy it all of course but as a counterbalance i need the nice and quiet of the forest. the aesthetics of commercial photography also influenced the images in his book of the photos reflect his love for the forest and mushrooms it's a bit like moritz smith's personal guide to happiness in walking the world is not only about mushrooms it's about an approach to life finding joy in the forest that's why the book is called into the woods hunting mushrooms and finding happiness and. often it's the young upwardly mobile urbanites who have discovered
12:43 am
the advantages of mushroom foraging over partying whether a project director in marketing or a d.j. in label head many people are taking to the woods to hunt for mushrooms. my life as a d.j. means i spend. internationally always on the road this kind of tranquility is the exact opposite. it's a big adventure to roam through the woods learn about new mushrooms and then take them home to cook its farms. in order to trade the urban jungle for the forest and mushroom hunting all that's needed is a pocket knife sturdy shoes and a basket and getting an early start is a good idea. if you go into the forest early you'll be rewarded with a great atmosphere it's often still foggy the birds are singing and of course being the 1st one there is key to hunting mushrooms nothing's more frustrating than just finding mushroom cuttings or no mushrooms at all. a few rainy days in
12:44 am
a little sunshine brings the mushrooms shooting out of the ground many are edible but a few are highly poisonous. schmidt has a tip pretty getters. as a general rule it's good to gather beliefs you can tell by looking underneath but they have little spongy porous layer instead of gills gills would be little stripes almost none of the beliefs are poisonous mushrooms so it's hardly possible to mix them up these mushrooms are really full proof. basket with delicious mushrooms just waiting to be prepared frying red pine princeps together will provide a wonderfully fresh and intensive taste experience but it's satisfying way. in the woods. when you have to do. it. and i next report a former stockbroker and successful businessman in the pharmaceutical industry gave
12:45 am
it all up to take over his parents' winery in france that was 30 years ago. long ago lost interest in chemistry finances. now he believes in the cosmic palace of. harnessing the moon and the cosmos to make wine may sound like mumble jumble but the frenchman is now considered one of the pioneers of biodynamic wine. the word valley is called the garden of france it stretches across the center of the country and for centuries has been the site for the cultivation of some of france's best wines like the legendary white wines of the chateau de la rochelle one winery insiders call vinegar nikolaus only the wine pope his kool-aid to sell hong counts as one of the world's best white wines and nikolaus only as the father of biodynamic video culture. the pull of you know.
12:46 am
biodynamic agriculture as the solution connects the location with the earth's natural cycle of life that's what's unique you might get smaller yields a higher cost but the result is an authentic flavor simply share receive like. the grapes are harvested. as they have been for any time 189 autumn's now susteren monks planted the 1st grape vines here in 1130 only once the grapes have ripened perfectly and they have a slight yellow orange tinge harvested until then they're tended and given her has for greater balance and harmony. for 5 weeks before the harvest i always give them a wash of honey from our beehives and rose hips through the wild roses quite extraordinary. and valeri and biodynamic compound that
12:47 am
ones work to the. case that way down the grapes with far more flavor. and the time is for planting the vineyards hectares and fertilizing and harvesting the grapes so influenced by the planets. only insists the phases of the moon have a decisive effect on the flow of juices in the plants as do the tidal ebb and flow the lunar calendar is an essential factor in the biodynamic methods at the winery now run by nikolaus daughter eugenie. city. see. also the interaction of all the planets it's a ballet of the planets in relation to the constellations throughout the year. they influence the growth of the vines the folks.
12:48 am
see themselves as nature's assistance they never use artificial fertilisers only the dung from their own livestock which are also part of the biodynamic concept they keep cattle especially for this purpose and initially strictly controls the cows diet. today they get apples from the wineries on the orchard. biodynamic growers regard the cow horns filled with dung as a kind of super premium fertilizer for the vines. it's not all sweet on t.v. but they're buried in left in the ground for 8 months. now is the right time for them we did them up again in spring said by then also a cow down in the horns is thoroughly composed as is and can be used as fertilizer for the soil profile they cook most really strongly sort of. thing that the grape harvest is going into the final stretch twice
12:49 am
a day personally serves the pickers a little picnic with coffee tea and home baked cakes and. once for fresh they take the hand picked grapes to the press. a good pressing takes about 3 hours. then the grape juice is poured into oaken barrels which go into the winery cellar for 6 months then the wine is ready to drink nothing is added. the annual production averages some 50000 bottles the unique pure white wine from there's only winery can even be enjoyed 20 years later. will soon be taking over completely from her father. just as i was born here and you could say this wine flows in my veins. were part of a whole i can't imagine ever doing anything else down in only modest with sides
12:50 am
this place has lots of history my brother and i want to continue this history so the lifestyle here can be preserved with the help of biodynamic bit of culture as far as possible. others may dismiss there's only one raise methods or even scoff at them as new age hocus. but they can't argue with success not only their showpiece wine. but all their white wines get good reviews from consumers and consumers alike. family knows the truth is in the flavor. every year in arts and traditional cattle drives take place all over the alps when the kettle return from the i have pine pastures it's a huge event and people come from all over to take part in the celebration the cow wasn't even decorated for our series quickly cast those i decided to join one in south taro it's a province in italy but they speak german there and the coasts on the way.
12:51 am
i have to kiss an ox and swing away for this of but. this is the largest of highest meadow in the alps i'm here from castile old cells to roll out with a cattle drive. this day means the end of the summer for the cows i might tell and so there is to bring them back to the. morning high up in the meadow the herd of nearly 40 belongs to the leak i couldn't ever bring them all down by myself the farmers have to help out. for the occasion. and before we had down to the valley everybody has to fuel up we'll be walking 23 kilo much as today. and here we have a kind of beauty salon for the i have a couch they be decorated for the drive the farmer has
12:52 am
a clear favorite. this is my sunshine she'll stay with us until she dies that's certain. no sunshine has taken part in 7 cattle drives me to lunch at some point enough is enough we're at an altitude of 2000 meters you can't keep the cattle up here forever it's a wonder that they even stay up here that they don't start wandering down on their own right wandering down on their own. the winter cold sets an alley in the high mad i'm actually in trust with the leading one bull i have to take care of louis the ox for the next few hours but he's stubborn as well as an ox. i turn on the charm to try to win over lewis everybody has its own cousin ality but in the end all of them can be handled. the herd gets on the way slowly by a single mindedly and unstoppably lewis does whatever he wants.
12:53 am
it's not far we won't be stopping for any breaks till we reach the valley that's a 5 hour march downhill at a brisk pace. farther down we pass a little hamlets like compound which spectators line to both locals and tourists the cattle drive is an important festival for the entire region but those cold also pretty noisy. and then suddenly trouble one of the oxen has broken away and must be chased down the tourists must have spooked him one of the help a spot him high up the mountainside. one wrong move and he might fall to his death but the farmer son knows how to calm him down even so the bull has to climb back down on his own he's quite eager to return to the herd.
12:54 am
down among the traffic and well wait that one of the cows might become. they're fine they calmly navigate the roundabout no problem but a little property damage can hardly be avoided. here in the farmers and the herd breeders like celebrities hundreds lined the streets to witness at least part of the cattle drive and the foremost get to where we want. the last few metres to the farm. the cows know their home they'd be able to stay outside in the pasture next to the farmhouse for one moment meanwhile i check up on luis the ox one last time. he's not. you know. everything. even
12:55 am
after a 5 hour down at the pharmacy to help us and the. family at least are still wound up. all of the work the farmers have throughout the whole year is really celebrated on this one day and the farmers can show how proud they are of their cows and that is a really nice thing. i may not be born to be a cow go but at least i held out to the end and the cows probably like the summer and the alps better but here they make it through the winter. and i can tell you i had some muscles for things that kept on trying but it was a fall today check us out online for more exciting stories and this week's draw from me and the whole team here and belin.
