The Organic Prosecco and Organic Pinot Grigio

DID YOU KNOW ?

By drinking Organic Prosecco or Organic Pinot Grigio, 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 and Organic Pinot Grigio 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 and Organic Pinot Grigio 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 and Organic Pinot Grigio

    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
    • We need to protect the vineyard from the damaging insects’ attack, in order to be able to produce a high quality Organic Prosecco and Organic Pinot Grigio.

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

      However, organic farming’s pests control methods are environmentally friendly. That is because no pesticides are used.
    • DEFENSE OF THE VINEYARD CONVENTIONAL FARMING
      Using pesticides to protect the vine from the damaging insects is a common practice in conventional farming.

      However, this method kills not just pests, but also the good bugs.
      This practice 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 in vineyard that could function in his natural self-maintaining manner.

      For this reason, since using pesticides is banned in organic farming, we use a special technique 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 sex pheromone that reaches out and grabs the males.

      Sexual confusion method involves the use of use special dispensers, designed to release in the vineyard a high concentration of moth’s sex pheromone. By doing so, we can prevent male moths finding females and mating.

      What is the result?

      Thanks to the Sexual Confusion method, by just reducing the moths’ number of matings, we are able to reduce the number of damaging bugs in the vineyard without using pesticides!
    • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
      These 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?


      BENEFITS FOR YOUR HEALTH

  • THE SOIL
    • The best way to produce quality Organic Prosecco and Organic Pinot Grigio (healthy for us and for the environment) , is to improve soil management.
      Since weeds take lot of water and nutrients from the soil.

      They have a negative effect both on the vigor and on the yield of the vine.
    • SOIL MANAGEMENT IN THE CONVENTIONAL AGRICOLTURE
      In 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 can survive the chemical 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..

      That is why synthetic herbicides are banned in the vineyard and we use only the Strip cultivation technique to control the spread of damaging weeds.

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

      For this reason, mechanical weeding is cleaner and more respectful of the environment than chemical weeding.



      THE GREEN MANURE
      Green manure method is good to revitalize soil and keep it always fertile.

      After the ploughing vineyard’s soil, we plant a variety of seeds (like the rye, oats and some leguminous) that can be helpful for the vine once they are fully-grown.
      These plants will compact the soil and will became a natural fertilizer for the vine after mowing.
    • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
      A more sustainable management of the soil helps to keep it always fertile, with an evident positive effect on vines and grapes.

      Moreover, it is not over here:

      This kind of weed management system helps us not to pollute our land with herbicides that will inevitably contaminate 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 and Organic Pinot Grigio, you are choosing a safe Organic Wine, free from residues of synthetic herbicides..

      A good news for your health!

  • RENEWABLE ENERGIES
    • ORGANIC PROSECCO, ORGANIC PINOT GRIGIO AND RENEWABLE ENERGIES
      Any self-respecting organic wine production has to be always coherent and for this reason it has to besustainable not only in the vineyard, but also inside the winery.

      In order to reduce atmospheric pollution our Organic Prosecco and Organic Pinot Grigio are produced only with renewable energies.

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

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

      But this is just the beginning!
    • BIOMASSES FOR THERMICAL ENERGY PRODUCTION
      Grape vine pruning begins in winter.Thanks to pruning, we are able to manage the quality and quantity level of the grapes in the next harvest season.
      A more intense pruning will lead to less quantity of grapes and, for this reason, there will be a better quality at the expense of quantity; vice versa, a less 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 wintertime 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!
