We all fall down!
The land that hosts us, the flora and fauna that live there, the people who work that land – everything has to follow a development that is respectful of the environment, because the earth is the most important common good. And we have believed in this since the beginning.
Our agriculture has always been based on principles of sustainability. We prefer that the cycles of nature be in control, without forcing it, supported by men and women proud of their own work and who grew up in these lands, and who have its future at heart, season after season. In our estates, we are all in agreement on the fact that virtuous actions create an advantage for the whole community and it is to underscore this commitment that we chose to adhere to the ‘SOStain’ program, the first protocol for sustainability in the winemaking sector. Our Island is the pilot region for the program, and it allows us to know exactly the type of impact that our company has on the surrounding territory and how to limit that impact.
What interests us is not only that our wine be sustainable, but that the entire approach to the work that goes into a bottle of wine be sustainable too.
SOStain is a model for production and companies that helps set the objectives with greater awareness and a sense of responsibility, so as to safeguard the future for generations to come.
SOStain has become the compass, not only for our company but also in a certain sense for our lives. It offers quantitative measuring tools that furnish the indications necessary to continuously improve, including among the things required, aspects that include soil management and erosion, from the way workers are recruited to the economic repercussions the business has on the territory, from checking the weight of bottles to renewable energies utilized.
In these years of hard work, we learned a lot, but we also have the pleasant feeling that we still have a lot to learn.
SOStain studies and teaches us how to act.
