The organic prosecco

DID YOU KNOW ?

By drinking Organic Prosecco, you are not only choosing a healthier wine, without agrochemical residues,
but you are also contributing to create a more sustainable world!

  • An organic prosecco good for the Fauna

    Agriculture is a human’s unnatural artefact. However, thanks to organic farming we are shortening the gap between natural and unnatural.
    We let animal biodiveristy spread
    in the vineyard by not using synthetic herbicides or pesticides.

  • An organic Prosecco good for the Flora

    Grapevine’s roots are into the soil. That means that soil is the most important part of the vineyard. We do not use herbicides, because these can contaminate our land for years and years, weakening the plants. A naturally strong grapevine produces healthy grapes, which will become healthy organic wine.

  • Environment friendly organic Prosecco

    To protect the environment, the organic farming alone is not enough. In order to produce an organic Prosecco that is not responsible of increasing the atmosphere pollution we use only clean and renewable energy coming from biomasses and from the sun. And what about the packaging? Is it eco-friendly?
    Of course it is! Only recycled paper is used for labels and boxes.

  • Take care of the Nature

    Nature has given us a land which is extremely generous and it is our duty to protect and preserve it. Sustainability is our commitment!

  • fauna
    • To be able to produce a high quality Organic Prosecco we need to protect the vineyard from the damaging insects’ attack.

      This is a common rule, both in organic farming and conventional farming.

      However, the methods are very different.
    • DEFENSE OF THE VINEYARD CONVENTIONAL FARMING
      Using pesticides to protect the vine from the damaging insects is a common practice in the conventional farming, but this is a method that hit indistinctly all the insects, also the good bugs.

      Therefore, this leads to an impoverishment of the fauna.
    • DEFENSE OF THE VINEYARD ORGANIC FARMING
      Vice versa, the principal objective of the organic farming is to create an ecosystem that could function in his natural self-maintaining manner in the vineyard.

      For this reason, while the use of pesticides is banned, we use special techniques to control the population’s level of the damaging insects. .

      What is this technique’s name?
      THE SEXUAL CONFUSION METHOD:
      During the mating period, the female of moth (which is our target bug, very dangerous for the vine), releases in the air a special pheromone that reaches out and grabs the males.

      In the sexual confusion method, there are special diffusers that are designed to release in the vineyard an high concentration of the same pheromone. By doing so, the male of moth can no longer follow the female’s trail.

      What is the result?

      Thanks to the Sexual Confusion method we are able to hit selectively only the damaging bugs by just reducing the moths’ number of matings in the vineyard.
    • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
      Such short term methods, helps to promote the biodiversity in the long term; by incrementing the number of the natural enemies of pests in the vineyard it is possible to create an ecosystem that could function in his natural self-maintaining manner.

      What are the benefits for you?

  • THE SOIL
    • To produce a quality Organic Prosecco, which is healthy for us and for the environment, the protection begins in the soil.

      Weeds have a negative effect both on the vigor and on the yield of the vine, that is because they take lot of water and nutrients from the soil.
    • SOIL MANAGEMENT IN THE CONVENTIONAL AGRICOLTURE
      In the conventional agriculture, synthetic herbicides are used to defend the vine from the weeds.

      However, this method cause a reduction of the floral variety in the vineyard, because only the strongest herbs survived at the weeding.

      Moreover, the herbicides are absorbed by the soil and this cause a contamination of the vineyard.
    • SOIL MANAGEMENT IN THE ORGANIC AGRICOLTURE
      In the organic agriculture, the objective is to improve the herbs equilibrium in the vineyard..

      For this reason, synthetic herbicides are banned and we use the Strip cultivation in the vineyard.

      A rotating blade cuts and turns over the soil under the vine. By doing this, weeds are damaged, they do not receive the solar light anymore and are not able to grow;

      This is a mechanical weeding and not a chemical weeding.



      THE GREEN MANURE
      To keep the soil always fertile, we use to revitalize it using the Green manure method.

      After the ploughing, we plant a variety of seeds which that can be helpful for the vineyard (like the rye, oats and some leguminous); once they are fully grown, these plants will compact the soil and will became a natural fertilizer for the vine after the mowing.
    • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
      A more sustainable management of the soil helps to keep its vital force high, with an evident positive effect on the vine and grapes. And it is not over here:

      This kind of weed management helps us to not pollute our land with herbicides that will inevitably hit also other plants and animals.

      WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOUR HEALTH?
      Remember: what is NOT in the vineyard is NOT in your glass

      By choosing an Organic Prosecco, you are choosing a safe Organic Wine, free from residues of synthetic herbicides..

      A good news for your health!

  • RENEWABLE ENERGIES
    • ORGANIC PROSECCO AND RENEWABLE ENERGIES
      Any self-respecting organic wine production has to be always coherent and thus has to be sustainable not only in the vinery, but also inside the winery.

      To produce our Organic Prosecco we use only renewable energies, in order to reduce the atmospheric pollution.

      How do we do this?
      THE SOLAR ENERGY
      The sun is the renewable energy par excellence.

      Thanks to our photovoltaic plant we can guarantee all the energy needs for the Organic Prosecco producing process.

      But this is just the beginning!
    • BIOMASSES FOR THERMICAL ENERGY PRODUCTION
      Regarding the vineyard, an old proverb says “Make me poor and I will make you rich”.

      Grape vine pruning begins in winter.We cut some branch to decide the quality and quantity level of the grapes in the next harvest season.
      A more intense pruning will generate fewer grapes and, for this reason, there will be a better quality at the expense of quantity; vice versa, a more intense pruning will give more quantity of grapes, but the quality will be low.

      The pruning’s dried brush will become useful fuel for the production of hot water through a biomass boiler. This water will be used for healing up the winery during the winter time and for washing oak tanks and machinery.

      By doing this, we limit the utilization of fossil fuel.

      Why we do what we do?
    • BECAUSE SUSTAINABILITY IS OUR COMMITMENT!
