SUSTAINABILITY

We are moving forward to be a friendly cellar with the environment and sustainable in our production methods.

  • Photovoltaics energy. Since 2014 our winery produces a 75% of the energy used in its facilities from renewable sources through solar panels installed on the roof of our warehouse.
  • Best practices in the winery. Since 5 years ago, our export bottles are 25% lighter, which requires less energy for its transport, reducing our carbon footprint.
  • Best practices in the vineyards. We have renewed our fleet of tractors, for more modern and efficient units, consuming 35% less fuel.
  • Composting from pomace produced in the harvest and its subsequent use in the vineyard, it allows us to reduce by 40% the use of inorganic fertilizers.
  • To reduce erosion problems and nutrient losses, the 70% of our vineyard area is maintained with natural vegetation cover and species planted.
