OUR COMMITMENT TO ENVIRONMENT
Viñedos de Aldeanueva S.Coop. is committed to the environment and we work actively to keep our production processes as much sustainable as possible from the vineyard to the final consumer.
Our wager on sexual confusion treatment with pheromones against the grape moth, minimise the use of chemical insecticides, with the utilization of environmental-friendly techniques that, moreover, are more efficient. We use this treatment on 100% of our white grape varieties vineyards and on 70% of the red grape varieties, with the aim of reaching the totality of our vineyards within the next few years.
In our winery, Fincas de Azabache, we count with the innovative system of Oresteo , that reduces the consumption of electricity during its process with the consequent reduction of the emission of CO2 to the atmosphere. We get an average saving of 906 kg of CO2 per year. You can learn more about this process following this link to our post https://bit.ly/2S6VzbM
With the recent plantation of twenty trees in our facilities, we will have the capacity of absorbing over 3 Tm of CO2 per year.
Next year we will invest in a photovoltaic installation that will help us to reduce around a 25% of our electricity consumption, reducing therefore the environmental impact betting on renewable energies.
A part of our production is dedicated to the growing and elaboration of organic wine. Historically we are pioneers in this field, being in our facilities where it was produced the first ever bottle of organic wine commercialised by the DOCa Rioja
In collaboration, we all are capable of improving our environment and creating great quality products in a more sustainable way.
