What is carbon footprint and why is it important to reduce it?
We at Sorgente Wines are committed to reducing our carbon footprint: in the vineyard, in the winery, and overall as a business.
In order to constantly lower our farm’s carbon footprint, we only perform soil tillage once when the new vines are planted.
All performed operations are aimed at a sustainable wine making process, so as to have the least negative impact possible on the land, people and other forms of native life (the local flora and fauna). The resulting sustainable wines produced are thus made from grapes grown as per an organic agriculture methodology.
Once our wines are ready to be bottled, we strive to source supplies and packaging from certified eco-friendly industries to select light bottles, print labels and wine cards, and to manufacture cardboard boxes. Last but not least, we’ve been among the early adopters of the Nomacorc enclosures: the first cork certified “carbon neutral”.
