Respect for the environment and nature
Our wines are certified by Valoritalia, an external officially recognized organism, as Certified Sustainable Agriculture products. This certification recognizes our commitment to respecting nature and its balance. Call them natural, artisan, true or ethical wines are the wines that are the result of our commitment for the ‘SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE. This means that we do not fight nature, but we work together with her to obtain the best grapes and wines that can best express the characteristics of our territory. In the vineyards we avoid interfering with the balance that is inherent in nature, reducing mechanical interventions as much as possible. Applying integrated production techniques we only use products from natural origin, so no synthetic pesticides or insecticides and we fight harmful insects by helping those which are considered “friends”. The land is therefore left grassy and spontaneous flowers help the bees in their work. To maintain fertility we use traditional targeted techniques.
We use natural products, manure and green manure only where we register specific deficiencies.
I firmly believe in respect for the nature and the environment in which I live. The philosophy of good, clean and fair leads me to always follow the criteria of environmentally friendly agriculture, where the integration of man with nature is fundamental. The vineyards are all grass and every non-traditional product has been banned for years.
For some years now, in the attempt to respect nature to the full, we have obtained the official certification of “vegan wine”, demonstrating the desire to eliminate any animal products even in the work in the cellar.
Renewable energy and recyclable materials
Sustainability for us also means using energy from renewable sources and in particular electricity produced by our solar panels.
It also means using fully recyclable boxes and labels produced with recycled paper, recyclable caps and closures as well as light bottles with low environmental impact.
Wine does not need a heavy bottle, it just needs to be protected from the light, but we obtain this through the color of the glass and not by its weight. Heavier bottles means more pollution as more CO2 is emitted during both production and transport.
Many of the most advanced countries in the world, of which Canada has become leader, have begun to reward these kinds of choices, and today the use of low-impact bottles is a fundamental requirement.
