Recycle stillage, which is the waste water from the distillation process, for drip irrigation in the vineyards. Drip irrigation method still used in local agriculture, conserves water and the natural fetilizers.
In addition, channels have been installed to collect all water used during the cleaning of the distillery so that it can be processed for use around the property, including for vineyard irrigation.
Planted a rooftop garden in the fermentation room that helps offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which occur naturally during fermentation. We use the plant, Sansevieria trifasciata, which, according to NASA, is one of the best plants for improving indoor air quality.
Reuse pruning clippings for organic materials around vineyards as a natural fertilizer. We also convert the grape pomace and skins into organic compost and fertilizer.
By planting in two different fields uniquely suited to each varietal, we maximize the nutrients of the soil.
Reduce carbon footprint by minimizing machinery. Using gravity-fed distillation, picking the grapes by hand, and weeding the vineyards by hand all minimize the use of machinery and reduce CO2 emissions.
