What “sustainability” means to us
“We must listen to Nature’s voice and answer in kind.”
We are convinced, like others before us, that there is no future without agriculture (“Pas d’avenir sans agriculture”, as our cousins across the Alps say). But today’s agriculture has to observe some rules.
Specifically, our current protocols envision:
- the use of two photovoltaic systems installed on the roofs of the company’s buildings, which cover all of the company’s electrical energy needs
-the collection and reuse of rainwater for agricultural purposes
-the use of lightweight bottles (under 500 g, 20% less than the average bottle weight) made with over 80% recycled glass: this saves on raw materials and reduces CO2 emissions during transport
-the exclusive use of natural corks
-the reuse of mown grass and pruning waste to fertilize the vineyard soil
-the use of wooden poles sourced from responsibly managed forests
-complete grassing of the vineyards to prevent soil leaching
-as a consequence of low impact cultivation, wines that are free of chemical residues
-compensation of CO2 emissions during production and transport through twenty hectares of wooded property, along with the vineyards and grass.
