Environmental Policy

SOIL AND VINEYARD
  • Reduction of pesticide treatments in the vineyard
  • Use of natural fertilizers using legumes such as broad beans, clover as these are plants that can accommodate nitrogen-fixing bacteria and grant nitrogen to the soil
  • Protection of erosion by grassing at critical points
  • Preventive defense of the vine by adopting agronomic practices that support and help combat the plant e.g. flaking, thinning of bunches, green pruning
  • During the planting phase, only wooden poles are used to support the vines
  • Only biodegradable ropes are used in the binding phase, or in older vines, binding with willow is still used
WATER
  • Use of low volume sprayers for the treatment of the vines that reduce the amount of water to be used during the treatments
  • Any irrigation and treatment is done only and exclusively using rainwater collected through tanks located in each vineyard
  • The washing water from the cellar is channelled into collection pits
  • An annual chemical check is carried out on the company’s water coming from the aqueduct
  • In order to avoid the abuse of chemical products with a consequent greater use of water during the sanitization of the tanks, is only used hot water
  • Water is microfiltered
WASTE
  • The by-products of the winemaking process, e.g. pomace, are sent to the distillery
  • The stems are transported in the soil to produce organic fertilizer with zero impact
  • For the filtration of wines, almost exclusively reusable candle filters are used
  • Plastic waste is transferred to companies operating for recycling
FAUNA
  • We maintain on our land wooded areas with different types of trees, and since 10 years have been planted olive trees and other types of fruit trees near our vineyards in order to ensure proper biodiversity
ECOLOGICAL ENERGY SOURCES
  • Choice of the most energy-efficient electrical machinery
  • Photovoltaic plant installed in the vineyard and in the cellar
