- Sustainability Criteria -
With an ambitious biodiversity plan in mind, we regularly plant different varieties of trees and plants in the vineyard, vegetable gardens and build nests for birds. We strive to achive an ecosystem balance, far beyond the balance in the vineyards alone.No use of chemicals or systemic treatments.
We're also planting barley, oats, and clover in the vineyard, to keep the soil alive. We're keeping the soil soft, in order to avoid stress for the vines' roots, we use natural products to reduce the impact of chemicals and we produce our own compost.
The footprint of glass bottles. For still wines, we only use glass bottles that don’t exceed 550gr/ bottle, therefore minimizing not only the amount of glass used but also the pollution related to the transport of heavier rainwater.
Water is life, it's precious, it's scarce. It's above all a value in itself and it needs to be respected and protected. We optimize the use of waters in a small collection lake, reactivating the wells already present in our lands and the integration of artificial tanks: recycling of rainwater to use in the cellar, to water the vegetable garden and all gardens of the winery is a way to preserve the local "water value".
