What does it mean to be sustainable? This term can assume a lot of different meanings, from environmental to social sustainability.
For us, the concept of sustainability takes concrete form in the safeguarding of biodiversity, in an intelligent and sustainable use of crop protection products, but not only in these things. During the years we switched from the use of pesticide to the release of beneficial insects, hugging the concept of biological control.
The pruning, of course, is done manually, trying to provide as much continuity as possible to the vines, thanks to ramification pruning. Furthermore, since water is a precious resource and vines are tenacious, we have chosen to not irrigate our vineyards.
From several years we have abandoned chemical weeding, choosing a mechanical management of the under the vines strips. We aim to carry out interventions as targeted as possible, such as in the fertilization, which are administer only when the plants need them.
Our attention is not expressed only in the vineyard, but also in all the activities of daily life inside and outside the cellar. New generation equipment makes it possible to contain more waste, so we can also count on the advancement of technology.
Finally, we are moving towards the use of increasingly sustainable packaging, in order to eliminate the use of unnecessary plastic.
For us, transparency is a further strength, so we want to tell you something else: sustainability is built day after day, step by step, so over the years we will introduce further innovations. This means that even if today we are not sustainable in every single action, one day we may be.
