“Wineries may not use chemically synthesized fertilizers, herbicides, or anti-botrytis fungicides.” And furthermore: “A conscious and sustainable approach to the use of environmental resources in winemaking must be applied. Dependence on irrigation systems must be limited and should only aim to avoid critical water-stress conditions.” Slow Food Manifesto for good, clean and fair wine

A conference to discuss the challenges posed by ecological transition and the production of wine, and the tools at hand to face these challenges: good practices for real environmental sustainability.

We speak of sustainability, but what methodologies can help winemakers reduce their environmental impact while maintaining the quality of their product? Naturally, these aspirations need to be economically-sustainable for the winemaker, too.
